Catalogue Note

Edited by William Whiston from the manuscript of Newton's Lucasian lectures which were on deposit in Cambridge. Newton liked nothing about the book, and even threatened to buy up the whole edition (of 1000 copies), but when he republished it himself, the changes he made were primarily the reordering of his own manuscript, and not what Whiston had done.
