"The Poeticon Astronomicon was one of the primary ancient literary sources on the constellations. In the Renaissance the work was usually attributed to the Roman historian C. Julius Hyginus, who lived in the first century B.C., but we now know it was probably composed by some other Hyginus at a later date. The order of the constellations follows that of the catalog in Ptolemy's Almagest, so the work may date from the second century A.D or later.
The Poeticon was first published in the 1482 edition."
"Tycho Brahe's De nova stella was originally published in Copenhagen in 1573. In the book Tycho Brahe described his observations of a new star that had appeared in the constellation Cassiopeia in 1572.
Only a small number of copies of Tycho's book were printed, and it quickly became unobtainable, even, in his own time. But in 1632 an English printer, for reasons unknown, chose to issue an English translation of De nova stella, calling it, Learned Tico Brahae his Astronomicall coniectur."
This book, published in 1540, is the first appearance of Copernican astronomy in print. It inspired Copernicus to complete the manuscript he had begun thirty years earlier, and to finally publish his master work in 1543.
