University of Michigan: Researcher discovers “Galileo manuscript” forgery

University of Michigan: Researcher discovers “Galileo manuscript” forgery. “After an internal investigation of the findings of a Georgia State University professor of history, the University of Michigan Library has concluded that its ‘Galileo manuscript’ — for almost a century considered one of the jewels of the library’s collection — is not a document written by Galileo himself in 1609 and 1610 but a 20th-century fake, most likely executed by the well-known forger Tobia Nicotra.”
