Gray 12; Wallis 12, Sotheran, Second Supplement I, 5672. - The reprint of the second Amsterdam edition and the only one containing (with a separate title and separate pagination) the Quantitatum Analysis Series. The second edition was edited by Roger Cotes and brought out with the assistance of Richard Bentley, Master of Trinity College, with a new preface by Cotes: "In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy, then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton's theory of attraction is a causa occulta." The second edition also contains a revised conclusion, "a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged" (Babson). This Amsterdam reprint corrects a few errors made in the printing of the second edition and precedes the third edition by twelve years.
