Copernicus and his successors by Edward Rosen( )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 1,650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543) was the greatest astronomer of the first half of the sixteenth century and author of the epoch-making treatise On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres (De revolutionibus orbium coelestium), published in Nuremberg in 1543. Edward Rosen, the editor and translator of Copernicus's complete works, was the leading authority on this most celebrated of Renaissance scientists, on whose career and influence he wrote extensively but mainly in the form of articles. The essays in Copernicus and his Successors deal both with the influences on Copernicus, including that of Greek and Arabic thinkers, and with his own life and attitudes. They also examine how he was seen by contemporaries and finally describe his relationship to other scientists, including Galileo, Brahe and Kepler

On the revolutions of the heavenly spheres by Nicolaus Copernicus( Book )

12 editions published between 1978 and 1999 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Copernican revolution in man's ideas of the structure of the universe, the place of his own earth in it, and the methods and concepts appropriate for studying it is probably the most important turning point in the development of modern science and the European mind. Although Copernicus himself seems hardly to have realised the scope of the upheaval which he was starting, his book On the revolutions of the heavenly spheres, published when he was on his deathbed, is certainly one of the most significant in the history of European thought. It is important not only in the history of astronomy and cosmology but also in the history of mathematics. Although the mathematics involved would now scarcely be counted as advanced, the book was the most accomplished mathematical work published since the time of Ptolemy fourteen centuries before. The power and breadth of its treatment of the motions of the earth, moon and planets are still immensely impressive. Hitherto no English translation of the whole work has been readily accessible. Dr. Duncan has set out to convey the meaning and tone of Copernicus's words in a simple, straightforward style for English-speaking readers. The introduction and notes give the essential background for understanding the work"--Dust jacket

Three treatises on Copernican theory : the Commentariolus of Copernicus : the Letter against Werner : the Narratio prima of Rheticus by Nicolaus Copernicus( )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Universally regarded as a founder of modern astronomy, Copernicus wrote in Latin, and his works were unavailable in English until the publication of this 1939 translation. A three-part collection, it 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. The historical relevance of the "Commentariolus" and "Narratio Prima" is hard to overstate; these are the works that launched a revolution in the scientific perception of the universe. The inclusion of "The Letter Against Werner" offers an item of intrinsic interest that sheds light on the development of the great astronomer's thought. This revised edition of the original translation features extensive editorial apparatus, including an Introduction with biographies of Copernicus and his disciple, Georg Joachim Rheticus; background information on each treatise; and an index
