Sir Isaac Newton's Pocket Knowledge: A Virtual Tour of a Morgan Library Notebook

Join Philip S. Palmer, Robert H. Taylor Curator of Literary and Historical Manuscripts, for a closer look at this notebook, which comprises a diverse range of recipes, astronomical tables, mathematical problems, and linguistic observations.
