    Tycho Brahe Sistemi Hakkinda XVII. Asir Baslarina Ait Farsa Bir Yazma.

    An Early Seventeenth Century Persian Manuscript on the Tychonic System.
    Offprint from the Annual Review of the Institute of Archaelogy at the University of Ankara, describing a manuscript in the Vatican Library (MS Vat. Pers. 9), namely a 1631 copy of renowned explorer Pietro della Valle's Persian translation of a short pamphlet by one Christophoros Borrus, a Milanese Jesuit and astronomer, defending the planetary system of Tycho Brahe yet making no explicit mention of the Copernican system that was to supersede it: an interesting insight into the defining contest in 17th-century astronomy.
