Caption: De revolutionibus title page. This famous work was published in 1543 by the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543). The full title is De revolutionibus orbium coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres). This book revolutionised astronomical thinking in medieval Europe. It overturned the centuries-old Ptolemaic geocentric (Earth-centred) system, and replaced it with the heliocentric (Sun-centred) Copernican system. The text on this title page is in Latin.
