N EW TO N ’S OPTICAL PAPERS 37 Hooke’s continuing opposition to Newton’s optical theories that caused Newton to delay publication of the Opticks until long after his own active research in the field had ended. Hooke died in 1703, and the Opticks, much of which had existed in manuscript for years, first appeared in the following year.

The first volume of this edition ap­ peared in 1704, the second volume not until 1710. The Lexicon Technicum was a general “dictionary” of arts and sciences, justly famous in its day, and has been called the prototype of the numerous “dictionaries” of the sciences that were published in the 18th century. It went through at least five editions (the fifth printed for T. ” Our reproduction [the title page of volume II is reproduced on page 255 below] is from the copy of the 1710 (vol­ ume II) first edition, in the Harvard College Library (not in Gray or Babson; mentioned briefly by Greenstreet).
