Neville Collection

This collection of mathematics books was created by Eric Harold Neville (1889-1961), Professor of Mathematics at the University of Reading from 1919 to 1954. There are about 200 pre-1851 works including early editions of Newton's Principia naturalis principia mathematica.

We also hold the papers of Professor Neville.
