Isaac Newton's The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy translated by Andrew Motte and published in two volumes in 1729 remains the first and only translation of Newton's Philosophia naturalis principia mathematica, which was first published in London in 1687. As the most famous work in the history of the physical sciences there is little need to summarize the contents.

Isaac Newton, Andrew Motte. In mechanics, Newton enunciated the principles of conservation of momentum and angular momentum. Be the first to ask a question about The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy; Volume 1. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. In optics, he invented the reflecting telescope and developed a theory of colour based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into a visible spectrum. He also formulated an empirical law of cooling and studied the speed of sound.
