was born, 1682, Nicholas Saunderson:
when only a year old, he was deprived
of his sight by the small-pox; being sent
to the free-school at Penistone, he at-
tained to great proficiency in classical
learning, and afterwards made such
progress in algebra and geometry, that
his friends sent him to Cambridge,
where he delivered lectures on mathe-
matics to crowded audiences; on the
resignation of Whiston, he was ap-
pointed the Lucasian professor: his ele-
ments of algebra, and his treatise on
fluxions, are yet esteemed : he died in
1739. The manners of Saunderson
were rude, and his opinions too free for
the air of a university; but he exhi-
bits the most powerful example which
England has seen of the concentration
and force of intellect in any individual
labouring under so severe a privation
as loss of sight. Dr. Blacklock was a
poet, at least a versifier, and John Met-
calf of Knaresborough exceeded Saun-
derson in the variety of his acquirements,
and his dexterity in out-of-door occupa-
tions, but it was left to the Lucasian pro-
fessor to acquire, in an age of science, a
name second only to Sir Isaac Newton.
