This is a short sketch of the life of Nicholas Copernicus and his works; it contains a chapter on his genealogy in order to prove his Polish ancestry. This book is issued by the Kosciuszko Foundation in an effort to set before the American people the claims of Polish culture. It is profusely and well illustrated and is altogether an acceptable contribution to medical history, since Copernicus happens to have been a physician.
