I join in no having reading Copernicus yet. I think that Galileo's "Two New Sciences" is prioritary, and perhaps also Newton's "De Motu", or the first 50 pages of his "Principia". From accounts of others, I am fascinated about a small quote, when Copernicus argues that the size of the solar system respect to earth is "as an atom to a whole body". Bohr's model reversed!
