The Cambridge University Library today published online nearly 4,000 pages of material from the iconic scientist Isaac Newton. Mathematical and scientific manuscripts, including some of the mathematics he developed to arrive at the principles of what are now called "Newtonian physics," are available on the Cambridge Digital Library site, giving the public access to Newton's 17th century scientific works.
Here's the original cover of Newton's "Waste Book," a notebook in which he developed much of his important work on calculus. He started using the notebook in 1664 when he was away from Cambridge due to the plague.
