Death of Sir Isaac Newton...

Item # 685204

March 25, 1727

MIST'S WEEKLY JOURNAL, London, March 25, 1727  

* Death of Sir Issac Newton (very rare)

When it comes to notable deaths of the world, they don't get too much better than this.
Page 2 has a simple, yet powerful report noting simply: "Died, Sir Isaac Newton, the greatest Mathematician that the World ever knew."
Isaac Newton was an English mathematician, physicist, astronomer, alchemist, theologian, and author widely recognized as one of the greatest mathematicians and physicists of all time and among the most influential scientists. 
Terrific to have this report in a newspaper from the city where he died. We've had a report on his funeral, but this is the first death report we've had in our 46 years.
Four pages, never-trimmed margins, full red tax stamp on the front page, 9 3/4 by 13 inches, very nice condition.
