- About this book
The continuity principle, still central to all modern hydraulics, was first advertised in 1628 by Benedetto Castelli in his book entitled «On running waters». This book provides a complete facsimile of the first edition of Castelli's book, together with an English translation of the work (the first since 1661) on facing pages. There is also a biography of Castelli, and notes on the technical issues raised by Castelli's text.
