Cambridge University has digitized Sir Isaac Newton's Books and you can read them online. Wired magazine has a gallery of the digitizing process.

Cambridge University Library holds the largest and most important collection of the scientific works of Isaac Newton (1642-1727). We present here an initial selection of Newton's manuscripts, concentrating on his mathematical work in the 1660s. Over the next few months we will be adding further works until the majority of our Newton Papers are available on this site.
