<title> RIASSUNTO </title>Si presentano una serie di strumenti scientifici, probabilmente impiegati per l'insegnamento. La serie comincia con la collezione iniziata da Filippo II (secolo XVI) per la «Regia Accademia di Matematica» che sarebbe diventata il «Collegio Imperiale di Madrid» e infine lo «Studio Regio di San Isidro» nel 1767.Gli strumenti formano uno dei nuclei del Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia di Madrid (Spagna). Sono descritti astrolabi, planisferi in legno e altri strumenti, come la bagestiglia firmata e la Gemma Frisius, e si presentano alcune novita sull'astrolabio di Juan de Rojas.

Affiliations: 1: Museo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología, Madrid The authors presented this work in the XII Scientific Instruments Symposium (Edinburgh, 1992). Only the information about the astrolabe (inv. num. 85/4/362) is added now. The authors wish to acknowledge their gratitude to the authorities of the Museo Arqueologico Nacional, Madrid, for their help. Namely the Director Dr. Carmen Perez Dfe, the Deputy Director Dr. Zozaya and Mr. Antonio Sanchez Barriga, of the Conservation Dept. for their generous help, with the aid of the equipment necessary to confirm our hypothesis about the Juan de Rojas astrolabe, the planetary and the planisphere presented here. They also wish to thank Dr. Zozaya for the English version of their text. Also we would like to acknowledge the suggestions of Dr. Turner about the radius latinus and the 16th anonymous astrolabe.
