The Rare Book and Manuscript Library has acquired an Isaac Newton Manuscript

The manuscript contains instructions for making the philosopher’s stone, a substance with a long and legendary story dating back to the middle ages, and a substance that was sought after by many, including Sir Isaac Newton (and you know, Voldemort). 

Seriously though, this is a pretty amazing find. You can read more about the manuscript here.
