The Copernicus of Antiquity: Aristarchus of Samos
by

Publisher: The Macmillan Company
Number of pages: 72

Description:
The crowning achievement of anticipating the hypothesis of Copernicus belongs to Aristarchus of Samos alone; but to see it in its proper setting it is necessary to have followed in the footsteps of the earlier pioneers who, by one bold speculation after another, brought the solution of the problem nearer, though no one before Aristarchus actually hit upon the truth.
