Re: Principia


I agree with Derek. This is the authoritative English translation.
Well-documented with extensive footnotes that aided me greatly when I
read parts of it for my masters thesis. I was moved to purchase my own
copy (~$60 I think) even though the university library had ample copies
because I felt it was something I ought to have on my bookshelf. I'm
glad I did because I refer to it every so often.
