 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Folio C [86]

Astronomiae Physicae et Geometricae Elementa, 28 February 1698

 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [43]
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.

De affirmanda parallaxi magni orbis, cogitatum Hugenii, June 1693

 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [15]
Scope and Contents A transcription of Christiaan Huygen's argument that because stars' observed radii are so insensibly small, the diameter of the earth's orbit relative to the stars' position is also insensible, and thus the parallax measurement, which ought to prove or disprove the Copernican layout of the heavens, is useless.

Scope and Contents Notes from a trip to London in May and early June of 1681. Gregory saw Boyle's pneumatic pump (an 'antlia' is a siphon) and a method of making 'leaves' with molten glass and water.
