The life of the great Polish astronomer Copernicus against the background of the times (fifteenth/sixteenth centuries), the world in which he lived and the planet he launched on its orbit round the sun, thus initiating the Copernican era and a revolution in man's concept of the universe. With a number of tipped-in coloured plates, sixty pages of text and around 170 pages of captioned black & white photographs.
