THE inconvenience arising from the great scarcity of former editions of Sir Isaac Newton's Principles, and System Of The World, added to the exorbitant prices charged for them when to be met with, determined the Editor to undertake a New Edition of those Works; and he is impressed with confidence, that no other apology will be thought necessary, at a time when Mathematics is become a fashionable science, and is looked upon as . a necessary acquisition in the polite world.

In compliance with the solicitations of several respectable Mathematicians, to this Edition is added Mr. W. Emerson's much admired Comment, and Defence of Sir Isaac Newton's Principsa, thereby rendering the Work more easy of comprehension to students, and others, not fully acquainted with the higher branches of Mathematics; and the Editor is not without hope that the whole will be found generally correct:——Perfection he has not yet thought of aspiring to,
