Isaac Newton

Eighteenth-century Perspectives

A. Rupert Hall

In this new work eminent Newtonian scholar Rupert Hall presents, for the first time in one volume, five early eighteenth century biographical notices of Sir Isaac Newton, plus insightful commentary on each translation. The book features a new translation of the first biography of Newton, written by Paolo Frisi and published in 1778, and also includes a bibliography of the Newtons works. This valuable addition to the works on Newton will be of interest to historians of science, Newtonian scholars, and interested general readers.
