Catalogue Entry: THEM00009
Three paragraphs on religion, with drafts
Bought at the Sotheby sale by Maggs Brothers for £13 and sold to Keynes on 22 July 1936 for £20.
Each paragraph has a separate heading: 'Our religion to God'; 'Our religion to Iesus Christ'; 'Our religion to the Church'. Followed by a shorter draft of the whole and two variant and expanded versions of the first paragraph, Latin notes on tides, and a list of editorial instructions in Latin, these last two relating to emendations to the first edition of the Principia.
Somewhat confusingly described in the Sotheby catalogue as being on '1 p. folio; with a shorter draft of the whole and 2 amplified versions' (p. 71).
Third and largest draft of the first paragraph printed in Brewster (1855), 2: 354. All three paragraphs printed in McLachlan, Theological Manuscripts, 54-5.
