Join The Rare Book & Manuscript Library for a public viewing of Sir Isaac Newton’s “Opus Galli Anonymi.” This exciting manuscript, acquired through a generous gift from Library Friends Jim and Lionelle Elsesser, is Newton’s Latin translation of a French work on making the philosopher’s stone, with corrections and notes by the mathematician based on his own scientific work. The digital version of the manuscript will also be unveiled and remarks given from Gregory S. Girolami, The William H. and Janet G. Lycan Professor of Chemistry, at this special event.
November 16, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. (lecture at 5:45 p.m.)
