Until the publication of this 1939 translation from the original Latin, the writings of Copernicus were unavailable in English. The three-part collection consists of the Commentariolus, Copernicus' sketch of his hypotheses for the heavenly motions; Narratio Prima, Georg Joachim Rheticus' popular introduction to Copernican theory; and The Letter Against Werner, Copernicus' refutation of the views of one of his contemporaries. Includes extensive editorial apparatus.

Polish mathematician and astronomer Nicholas Copernicus (1473?1543) formulated the heliocentric model of the universe with the 1543 publication of On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres, one of the defining texts of the Scientific Revolution. A true Renaissance Man, Copernicus was a physician, classical scholar, polyglot and translator, governor, diplomat, and economist.
