A scurrilous pamphlet probably directed, according to Gregory's marginalia, at Flamsteed, by one "Charles Bernard Chirurgein".
Notes on conversations with Boyle and Fatio, including the former's notions on the quantity of motion in bodies rotated about their own axis, and the latter's theory of gravity.
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.
Novelties seen and sketched by Gregory in Paris and the low countries. These included a camera obscura and a candle-powered projector.
Two University of Edinburgh class cards admitting the bearer, Andrew Lawson, to David Ritchie's lectures on Logic & Metaphysics, 1808, and to John Playfair's lectures on Natural Philosophy, 1810.
Volume entitled Buchananus De Sphaera: George Buchanan, with commentary by Adam King, covering key aspects of mathematical, natural philosophical, and astronomical knowledge from antiquity to the early modern period, from the Christian West and the Islamicate and pre-Islamic East, and from Copernicus to Galileo and Kepler. Bound with this is a second manuscript containing poetry by King.
Volume contains manuscript notes on the notion that physical interaction between bodies is not a matter of Newtonian forces, governed by Keplerian laws, but of the cumulative effect of collisions and other interactions among particles.

- 24 letters, alphabetically arranged (1867-1916)
Editorial issues in Gregory's major textbook.
A short musing, in an unfamiliar hand, on the nomenclature of physics, (natural) philosophy, and astronomy.
