The second volume of Dr Whiteside's annotated edition of all the
known mathematical papers of Isaac Newton covers the period
1667-70. It is divided into three parts: Part 1 contains the first
drafts of an attempted classification of cubics, together with more
general studies on the properties of higher algebraic curves and
researches into the 'organic' construction of curves. Part 2
comprises papers on miscellaneous researches in calculus, including
the important De Analysi which introduced Newton to John Collins
and others outside Cambridge; Newton's original text is here
accompanied by Leibniz's excerpts and review, and by Newton's
counter review. Part 3 contains Mercator's Latin translation of
Kinckhuysen's introduction to algebra, with Newton's corrections
and 'observations' upon it, and an account of researches into
algebraic equations and their geometrical construction.
