These Optics and Principia first edition volumes have been annotated/corrected by Isaac Newton himself. They reside with his other books, perfectly nestled in one of the alcoves in the Wren Library, Trinity College Cambridge.
Designed by architect Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1695, the Wren Library is one of the great masterpieces of Cambridge. Tall windows flank both sides of the long room, making it a light and airy space. The 5m tall window at the end (see ‘Window‘) depicts Isaac Newton being presented to King George III with Francis Bacon recording. The bookcases are adorned with wood carvings by Grinling Gribbons (see ‘E‘) and marble busts. Of particular interest are first editions of Isaac Newton’s Optics and Principia that Newton himself hand-annotated (see ‘Newton’s books‘ for the shelf, or ‘Optics and Principia‘ for the detail).
Make sure to look through the other images of the Wren Library as well.
