Newton recorded all his thoughts on paper and all his papers have been preserved. The mathematical papers are now being prepared for publication. They reveal the evolution of his ideas, and throw new light on Newton, the mathematician and the man.

Three talks by Peter Laslett
Lecturer in History In the University of Cambridge 1: English Society in 1901 This first talk deals with the problem of poverty among working class people in the year of Queen Victoria's death, and the paradox of poverty in the most industrial society of the world as it then was. In this respect, above all, English 20th-century experience has been unique and possibly prophetic.
by Dixo BIZZATI
Translated and adapted by Henry Reed with Stephen Murray and Nigel Davenport
Giovanni Corte , a very lion of a man, gets caught up in the machinery of medicine, hospitals, ageing-death: it is a satire on a mid-twentieth century health service but also on a deeper level a modern morality play on the death of a rich man.

Agostino Steffani is now scarcely even a name, but apart from his music he played a decisive role in a matter worth mentioning. When Handel was in Italy in 1708 he met Steffani, who was in the middle of his distinguished career as a diplomat. Steffani urged Handel to visit Hanover, and we in this country therefore owe Handel's appearance in England to his influence. Steffani's chamber duets were immensely popular and are worthy to stand beside those of Handel himself.
