I am looking for a book where I can find information about Kepler's research about the connection between the planets and the music intervals. I once had some papers taken from such a book (called something like "a little book of stars"), but lost them.

I would be very happy if someone had heard about something like that.

Thanks!

Hi, and welcome to SGL.

I'm not acquainted with the book you mention, but there is a discussion of Kepler's "Harmonic Ordering" of the solar system in chapter 7 of this paper on Ceres.

Hello and a warm welcome to the SGL. I am not familiar with the book you mention but there is plenty of information on this topic on the internet.

In his famous book "The Sleepwalkers", Arthur Koestler describes (Part Four, Chapter II and III; about 35 pages) a lot of details around Kepler's "Mysterium Cosmographicum", embedded in it's various contexts; an interesting read (as is the whole book, very recommendable!)
