Principia Stolen

| | Comments (0)
[Reuters] : A first edition of Newton's "Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica", originally published in 1687, has been stolen from a Russian museum. Apparently you could actually request access to the book, and look at it while on-site. They discovered the theft only after the reading-room closed and found that the book hadn't been returned.
