     Sometimes detective, sometimes intrepid explorer, always engagingly ebullient enthusiast, Gingerich the scholar is the picaresque hero of his own narrative alongside the book he pursues... [He] brings to life the historian"s tireless quest for understanding of the past with all the pace and thrill of a James Bond movie." Lisa Jardine in The Times 1543 saw the publication of one of the most significant - and one of the boldest - scientific works ever written, On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres, in which Nicolaus Copernicus presented a radically different view of the heavens by placing the sun, and not the earth, at the centre of the universe. According, however, to Arthur Koestler, sixteenth century Europe paid little attention to the groundbreaking, but dense, masterpiece - it was "the book that nobody read". Intrigued by Koestler"s claim, Owen Gingerich embarked on a thirty-year odyssey to examine every one of the hundreds of surviving copies of the original in order to prove him wrong... Part detective story, part travel book, part chronicle of an obsession, a testament to the power of books, The Book Nobody Read tells Gingerich"s extraordinary story... An exuberant tale... A detective story, a Renaissance flashback, an expose, a true confession, an altogether engrossing, edifying romp through ideas and movable type." Dava Sobel [Full of] illuminations... A driven, fascinating book, and a rarity - a history of science by someone who actually knows about science" John Carey in the Sunday Times
