12 Snow, A.J. Matter & Gravity in Newton's Physical Philosophy A Study in the Natural Philosophy of Newton's Time
London Oxford University Press 1926 First American Edition Softcover Good Octavo 
256pgs Light gray wraps. A chip on the lower right corner of the front cover.toning to the extremities, otherwise internally clean, unmarked.

Indeed, Newton is remarkable for the fact that his work as a theoretician is matched by his work as an experimentalist—either aspect of his oeuvre would be sufficient to secure his place in the history of modern science. So in the popular imagination, and in the history books, Newton is seen as one of the greatest scientists of the modern period, on a par with few others (perhaps Darwin or Einstein)."
