Product description


Not only is the book a valuable contribution to the history of Newton's work, but it is a most enjoyable read with elements of a good detective story (J. S. Rowlinson, Science Progress)

Sarah Dry tells a riveting, beautifully written story (Times Higher Education)

Dry's fine writing and scholarship make this book a useful resource and a good read (Robyn Arianrhod, Times Higher Education)

compelling (Stuart Kelly, Scotland on Sunday)

Engaging book (Economist)

Dry is to be congratulated for furnishing us with a fresh and readable chronicle of the tortuous route that Newtons manuscript took to being made public. (Nature)

By identifying the roles of a host of collectors in securing various parts of the collection, Dry does full justice to a fascinating story; it sheds bright light on the range and development of this most brilliant - and most elusive - of minds. Pure joy. (Graham Farmelo, Times Higher Education)

Drawing on existing scholarship, it is a story well worth sharing with anyone interested in Newton and how we have, over three hundred years, come to know him and shaped his legacy. Sarah Dry has a colorful and intriguing cast of characters on which to draw, who represent a surprisingly varied set of motives for engaging with Newton's life and literary remains. (Rebekah Higgitt, H-Albion)
