NEW YORK - A copy of astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus' masterwork, printed
in 1543,
 went for the out-of-this-world price of $2.2 million on Tuesday at a
sale of more than 300
books of scientific significance, according to the Christie's auction house.

The rare first edition of "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium" (On the
Revolutions of the
Heavenly Spheres) went for well more than the expected price of $1.2
million, Christie's
reported after the sale. The book put forth Copernicus' theory that the
sun, not the earth,
was at the center of the universe.

En snabb slagning i LIBRIS visar att boken finns fritt tillgänglig för
alla som vill studera den
fantastiskt djärva teorin närmare. Det kostar ingenting
