The Isaac Newton sundial
Drawing of the stone sundial said to have been cut by Sir Isaac Newton, shown in its presentation box. The box lid is open, with a print of Woolsthorpe Manor in Lincolnshire (its original location) on the inner lid. The work is inscribed in pencil: "Solar Dial made by Sir Isaac Newton, when a boy, at Woolsthorpe." Drawn for an article by Herbert Rix (1850-1906), assistant secretary of the Royal Society. The illustration was made to be engraved by the Butterworth and Heath company (active 1856-1896) and published in the Leisure Hour for 1896.
