First Edition, second printing. 68 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. 'The Mathematical Discoveries of Newton arose from two lectures which Turnbull gave on Newton. The first was given at a meeting of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society in December 1942 to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Newton's birth. The second was given at a meeting of Edinburgh University's Mathematical and Physical Society. Turnbull writes: 'Without going into too much detail I have tried to explain - as far as the work of geniuses can be explained - what led Newton to these discoveries. The positive interest afforded by contemplating the wonderful range covered by his early mathematical work provides an adequate theme for this short study, and makes unnecessary an attempt to deal with the controversies which clouded his later years.' It is so typical of Turnbull that he chose to emphasise the extraordinarily positive aspects of Newton's life and work. After he retired in 1950 Turnbull, at the request of the Royal Society, began to work on the Correspondence of Isaac Newton. Two volumes of this important work were published before his death' (MacTutor History of Mathematics Web site). Buchnummer des Verkäufers 23503
