In
the Presence of the Creator : Isaac Newton and His Times
by Gale E. Christianson
Hardcover
Free Press; June 1984
"Combing literally millions of words of documents and com
mentaries, Christianson constructs a readable and balanced
biography, adding background portraits of Restoration Cam
bridge and Augustan London to further delight the historian.
With support from extracts of letters of the principals, the
many controversies... are judiciously explored, and the
resulting image should become a standard, for this well
constructed volume should easily become the most widely
read Newton study yet."

Newton : The Last Sorcerer

(Cambridge Companions to Philosophy)
by I. Bernard Cohen (Editor), George E. Smith (Editor)
Paperback  350 pages

his approach to space, time, mechanics, and universal gravity
in his Principia, his research in optics, and his contributions
to mathematics, but also his more clandestine investigations
into alchemy, theology, and prophecy, which have sometimes
been overshadowed by his mathematical and scientific interests."

Newton's
Principia for the Common Reader
by S. Chandrasekhar
Hardcover
Clarendon Press; July 1995
"The first comprehensive analysis of Newton's Principia
without recourse to secondary sources. Chandrasekhar
analyses some 150 propositions which form a direct chain
leading to Newton's formulation of his universal law of
gravitation. In each case, Newton's proofs are arranged in
a linear sequence of equations and arguments, avoiding
the need to unravel the necessarily convoluted style of
Newton's connected prose. In almost every case, a modern
version of the proofs is given to bring into sharp focus the
beauty, clarity, and breathtaking economy of Newton's
methods." —Amazon.com
