This reproduction of Isaac Newton's "Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica" in Latin by Rough Draft Printing is surprisingly crisp, clean and readable. In fact, it's so well typeset, it makes me almost suspicious!

[PS. This is a review of the Rough Draft Printing reproduction, ISBN 1603864350, not the Watchmaker Publishing reproduction, ISBN 1603863796.]

I have bought so many appalling reproductions of historical works in the last 6 months that I was beginning to expect a dodgy fly-by-night effort. So this nice reproduction is a refreshing surprise. (The very first thing I did was to check whether all the pages were there, and that nothing obvious was messed up. It looks perfect to me, as if a human had done some quality control on it.)

* The text.
* This is evidently a copy of an 1871 University of Glasgow printing of the 1726 third edition of the Principia which appeared at the end of Newton's life. The wikipedia article on the Principia outlines the various editions and mentions in particular that there were several Scottish editions in the 19th century which were based on French versions with commentaries. This version, although Scottish, does not seem to be based on any French edition. It seems to be taken directly from the 1726 third edition. However, it looks to me like it has been newly typeset because printing quality was never this good in the early 18th century.
