mt_ignore:Facsimile edition of the greatest work by Nicolas Copernicus "De revolutionibus orbium coelestium", defining the heliocentric order of the 15th century world, is a copy of the work contained in the collection of the Copernicus University Library in Toruń.

It is the so-called "Kaliningrad" copy, purchased by Canon Donner for the court of Duke Albrecht Hohenzollern in Nuremberg in 1453. Connected with Hyginus and Ptolemy prints in one volume, bound by Kasper Anglar, it was included in the collection of the Castle Library in Kaliningrad. It reached Toruń after WWII with a batch of books from the Nova Library, i.e. coming from the oldest part of the State Library and University in Kaliningrad.

The facsimile was printed in a limited series of 100 copies.
