This fascinating and little known work of Sir Isaac Newton has been fully re-typeset and includes three colour plates (one of Thornhill's portrait of Newton, and two of Woolsthorpe Manor) and a facsimile page from the original 1733 edition. Newton takes a historicist approach to both Daniel and Revelation, for example identifying the dragon in Revelation 12 with pagan Rome and persecutions of the early church. The book contains several quotes in Latin which have been left untranslated, but these are commented upon by Newton in English and do not significantly detract from understanding of the work.
