Isaac Newton, whose Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica remained unchallenged as a way of studying the physical world until Einstein introduced the theory of relativity in the twentieth century.

First published under the auspices of the Royal Society in 1687, a much revised second edition came out from the Cambridge press. Come and see an image of Newton’s own revisions shown alongside the same page in the handsome Cambridge book of 1713. Book now to see his work at the Archive Evening event 'Printing and the Mind: Seventeenth-Century Transformations' on Monday 24 April 2017.
