Scope and Contents

Notes from a London meeting with Sir Isaac Newton on a revised plan for the Astronomiae physicae et geometricae elementa, (1702), Gregory's most important work. An erratum lies at the foot of this document, unrelated to it or to any of the other things on the sheet (which have their own entries in Gregory's index): a jotting about refraction, crystals, and cataracts of the eye. This is dated London, 30 May 1708.
