A Bibliophile's Quest for Copernicus.
Broad, William J.
Science, v218 n4573 p661-64 Nov 12 1982
A search is in progress for copies of Copernicus' 1543 publication "On the Revolutions of the Celestial Spheres." The history of each copy (215 found thus far) is being analyzed to offer insights into the past. For example, the futility of the Inquisition's attempt to censor the book was chronicled. (Author/JN)
