Sir Isaac Newton was Melvyn Bragg's inspiration for this book: 'sitting alone and in silence in his home, a farmhouse, forcing his mind to construct theories which eventually changed the world'. Principia Mathematica (1687) is the first of the 12 books Bragg describes, all by British authors and all creating 'conceptual chain reactions' that have shaped the way we live. Among the others - Magna Carta; Wilberforce's Abolition of the Slave Trade, The King James Bible and the Patent Specification for Arkwright's Spinning Machine. Off-mint.
