Copernicus and Giancarlo, Astro Cat – Mentor and Apprentice

From the book, "The Tales of Astro Cat"

In the preface to his treatise De revolutionibus orbium coelestium, in which he propounds his theory of the heliocentric model of the planets, Nicolaus Copernicus acknowledges his gratitude for a certain “Giancarlo”, who, he said, “one warm September evening shocked me out of my intellectual torpor, thus helping me to understand the sense of this theory”.

Another sample of the rich literary and illustrative work running throughout the pages of “The Tales of Astro Cat”, Davis and Kathleen Horner © 2012.
