<p style='text-align: justify;'>Newton's presentation copy of his Professorial Lectures, of which another copy, by Cotes, corresponding with this is in the library of Trinity College, and has been described in Mr Edleston's <i>Correspondence of Newton and Cotes</i> (London 1850), p. xcviii. The word Secundus in the title is crossed through; it may have been originally intended for a second book of the MS. Dd. ix. 46, which is headed, 'De motu corporum Liber primus'. The text of part of the lectures formed the basis of the <i>Principia</i>.</p>
