## Books about Sir Isaac Newton in the Institute's Library

The Newton Institute Library does not contain any of Newton's manuscripts; these are primarily to be found in the archives of the Cambridge University Library and the Keynes Collection at King's College. However, we do have a collection of texts dealing with Newton's life and works, including modern editions of some of his correspondence, mathematical and optical papers. We have also been given a modern transcript of the 1671 will of William Clark, the Grantham apothecary with whom Newton boarded while at the King's School (c.1630), and an inventory of the apothecary's shop (by kind permission of Ms. V. Horry).

The books are listed below by author/editor, and the shelf location is given after each one. Most are shelved together in the Isaac Newton section of the library, indicated by the shelf location 'NEW'.
