Attached is a list of Neri editions in the Rakow Library's collection – we have quite a few! You may be interested in two articles about Neri and his book on our website (here and here). We have also digitized the 1612 Italian edition (the first edition) and the 1662 English edition (the first edition translated into English), which you can look at by selecting the “Download” button and clicking on the PDF link that pops up. You’re welcome to look at our Neri editions while you are here. You mentioned a modern copy – this 2003 edition in English might be your best bet.
The Corning Museum of Glass is currently closed to the public effective March 16 through April 22, 2020, as a precautionary measure for public health and safety. As a result, resources available to answer your questions are extremely limited. During this closure, you may be interested in searching our Ask a Glass Question FAQs or reviewing our Research Guides on various topics. We also highly recommend checking out The Corning Museum of Glass on YouTube for hours of artist demonstrations, lectures, and special events. Thank you for your patience.
