Opticks, Or, A Treatise of the Reflections, Refractions, Inflections & Colours of Light
Here is one of the most readable of all the great classics of physical science. First published in 1704, Newton's "Opticks" provides not only a survey of the 18th-century knowledge about all aspects of light, but also a countless number of the author's unique scientific insights. It will impress the modern reader by its surprisingly contemporary viewpoint.
