On the revolutions of the heavenly spheres

In Poland, a reader said he had to use the bathroom--and made off with the treasured volume. A thief in Kiev, Ukraine, pilfered the book using a fake police ID.

Five copies remain missing. Gingerich has worked for a quarter-century compiling a list of all known copies of the first and second editions of the work, a quest that has taken him to cities and libraries worldwide--and has helped him trace at least two stolen copies. Sometime later, the reader said he had to visit the toilet--and disappeared.

A physician's library list dating to includes a manuscript whose description matches the Commentariolus , so Copernicus must have begun work on his new system by that time. At this time, Copernicus anticipated that he could reconcile the motion of the Earth with the perceived motions of the planets easily, with fewer motions than were necessary in the Alfonsine Tables , the version of the Ptolemaic system current at the time. Regiomontano et B. A manuscript of De revolutionibus in Copernicus' own hand has survived.
