It may be a great irony that our age of cultural destruction and—many would argue—decline also happens to be a golden age of preservation, thanks to the very new media and big data forces credited with dumbing things down.

Newton Papers : Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica

Newton Papers : Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica | Books, Photo, Video and Film | Scoop.it

On the Principia Mathematica


Newton's monumental Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, often shortened to Principia, was published in July 1687 and brought him international fame. In this three-part work, he lays out in mathematical terms his laws of motion and account of universal gravitation.

Although he was able to provide a convincing description of the effects of gravitation, Newton failed to provide a sufficient explanation for why gravity occurred, so he sought to address this and other concerns by preparing a further edition. We have digitised Newton's own copy of the first edition. It is interleaved with blank pages so he had sufficient space for annotations and corrections for his second edition, which he eventually published in 1713.

The book was severely damaged by fire and damp some time before it was given to the Library in 1872 as part of the Portsmouth collection.

A BBC Radio 4 'In Our Time' discussion of Newton's laws of motion can be listened to here


What are the novel ideas in the Principia Mathematica?

This item is also available in a free to download iPad app, with expert discussion from Professor Simon Schaffer and additional contextual materials.

This item is included in the Library’s 600th anniversary exhibition Lines of Thought: Discoveries that changed the world which runs until 30 September 2016.
