    Special Collections is home to the Ernst Zinner Historic Astronomy Collection. This world-class collection contains some of the oldest and rarest titles in the library, including thirteen incunabula (books printed before 1501), the first edition of Nicolaus Copernicus’ seminal text, De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (1543), and Tycho Brahe’s Astronomiae Instauratae Mechanica (1602).
