      first edition. "Zabarella must be considered one of the major figures of the revival of Aristotelian philosophy in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries . . . An important and influential collection of short treatises on various topics of natural philosophy is in his De rebus naturalibus (1590). In it he treats many specific problems (including the motion of heavy and light bodies, reaction, the regions of the air, mixture, and elementary qualities)"--DSB XIV, 581.
