Pemberton, a physician studied medicine under Boerhaave. He was a member of the Royal Society to which he contributed many papers: one of which came to the attention of Newton, and thus, a long friendship ensued. Newton employed him to superintend the third edition of the "Principia." Pemberton saw much of Darwin in his old age. "Probably the most famous (popularization of Newtonian philosphy) is that by Henry Pemberton.Pemberton's book is an excellent summary.So the reader of Pemberton would have emerged with a good idea of the whole Newtonian achievement, in the realm of physics. The presentation is relatively non mathematical.his remarks on what Newton believed are of great interest and the anecdotes are well founded." [see: KNIGHT. pp.66-67]. List of Subscribers.
