Overview

The complete collections from Cambridge University Library, King's College Library, Cambridge, and the Jewish National and University Library with other important holdings in Great Britain, Europe, and the United States.

Newton's intellectual life was by any standard unimaginably rich. His collected manuscripts and papers are a resource of inestimable value to scholars in many disciplines including historians of science and technology, of philosophy and of religion.

Sir Isaac Newton: Manuscripts and Papers brings together on microfilm the most comprehensive possible collection of Newton's writings offering access to a body of mostly unpublished and often fragile and inaccessible manuscripts which has been gathered into a single collection for the first time.

The range of material is vast and extends from the notebooks kept by Newton as he read and experimented, drafts of many published and unpublished writings, including successive versions of the Principia, through to notes hastily scribbled on scraps of paper.

In the manuscripts and papers is to be found the whole man. They include commonplace books; working notes and drafts of his mathematical discoveries, his work in optics and dynamics, and his chemical experiments (including alchemy); shipbuilding blueprints; educational projects; ecclesiastical calendars; historical theology; interpretations of mythology; world geography; economic treatises; records of the Royal Mint; chronological and historical studies of ancient Kingdoms; commentaries on Daniel and the Apocalyse; and medical treatises and potions.

Scholars can now explore, in one resource, every aspect of Newtonian achievement, both scientific and otherwise.
