Nicolai Copernici Torinensis De reuolutionibus orbium coelestium, libri VI
Apud Ioh. Petreium, Norimbergae, 1543
3. The New Universe
The earliest of the three books of science that most clarified the relationship of man and his universe (along with Newton's Principia and Darwin's Origin of Species). In manuscript form for many years, it was finally printed just before its author's death. In it the orbits of the planets are mathematically resolved by shifting the center of rotation of our universe from the earth to the sun. This copy contains the rare leaf of errata.
