HoS Micropost: Newton and the Apple (redux)

If you prefer the style of the Guardian, they too have an article on Newton and his apple, and The Royal Society’s Turning the Pages™ gallery. This post also includes links to the British Library’s and the Wellcome Library’s Turning the Pages™ galleries.

UPDATE #2: Links to the articles in Scientific American and in the NY Times.
UPDATE #3: Now this is just silly—link to the BBC News story and to the History Today article.
