'A monumental pioneering study of Newton's influence on British (including American) and Dutch experimental physics during the 18th century, especially through his Opticks and the famous 'Queries' appended to this work. Includes substantial discussions of the writings of Boerhaave, 'sGravesande, Desaguliers and Hales in particular, in addition to the history of 18th-century electricity.
