Buchbeschreibung Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, 1975. Hardcover. Yellow-orange cloth, black title block on spine, 300 pp., 4 BW plates. "This study, since its original conception, has contracted in its projected coverage of Newton's own alchemy as it has expanded in its coverage of the tidal waves of the Hermetic modes of thought that engulfed his period. Only a tiny fraction of Newton's own alchemical experiments have been explored in the event, but it is hoped that they have been made more comprehensible by placing them in their matrix in the intellectual currents of the seventeenth century. What has resulted here is a composite, and the word 'foundations' in the title may be taken in three separate ways. One sense in which the word is used in this work is that of origins, and the origins of Newton's alchemy in Restoration England are emphasized. Another sense is that of the experimental and scholarly bases Newton provided for himself in his alchemical studies, and those foundations are examined also for the earliest period of his work. The last sense in which the word is to be taken is that of supports, and alchemy is seen finally as comprising one of the pillars which supported the structure of Newton's mature science." (preface).
