|Title||'Animadversiones in novam Theoriam Motus' of Christopher Wren and Christian Huygens|
|Description||Criticisms about the new theory of motion by Christopher Wren and Christian Huygens|
Presented to the Royal Society on 10 June 1669
At end a note reads: 'This being read at the Society, Dr Wren declared, that what the Author of these Animadversions esteemed for a Paradox, he judge to be a Truth, and had, before this, considered as a Corollary naturally following from the Rules. The President said, that the General Cases of Motion, being but three, were in short made out thus'.
Brouncker's theory of motion follows this.
