“I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies but not the madness of people.”

Isaac Newton

 

A very rare printing of Isaac Newton’s famous ‘Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica’ or simply, ‘Principia’. ‘Principia’ was first published in 1687 and lists some of Newton’s most important work and discoveries including his laws of motion, law of gravity, and supports Kepler’s laws of planetary motion. Newton also gives commentary on his observations of comets, the motion of the moon, and other celestial bodies. Because of these astronomical discoveries, ‘Principia’ is considered “one of the most important works in the history of science.(Steele)

 

This second, and last, Glasgow edition was the final and best Jesuit edition. The Glasgow University sought a more complete edition of ‘Principia’ than that which had been done by Cambridge, an edition that had multiple printings, which the Scots were not pleased with. (Babson). This two-volume set includes in-text illustrations of mathematics problems, astronomy examples, and geometric figures.
