|View and download Isaac Netwon's handwritten papers: his own annotated copy of Principia Mathematica; the so-called "Waste Book," a large notebook that he inherited from his stepfather, and which Newton filled with notes and calculations when forced to leave his Cambridge studies during the Great Plague; and other manuscripts and letters that concentrate on his mathematical work (c1660s) and reveal how he thought about and developed the calculus. Newton came to Cambridge University as a student in 1661, graduated in 1665, and from 1669 to 1701 held the Lucasian Chair of Mathematics. This digitization of works previously available only at Cambridge University's Library results from a collaboration between Cambridge and the University of Sussex, home to the Newton Project.|
