The writings of Copernicus were unavailable in English until the publication of this 1939 translation. A 3-part collection, it consists of the Commentariolus, Copernicus' sketch of his hypotheses for the heavenly motions; the Narratio prima, a popular introduction to Copernican theory; and the Letter against Werner, Copernicus' refutation of the views of a contemporary.
