Opticks concludes with a set of “Queries.” In the first edition, these were sixteen such Queries; that number was increased in the Latin edition, published in 1706, and then in the revised English edition, published in 1717/18. The first set of Queries were brief, but the later ones became short essays, filling many pages. In the fourth edition of 1730, there were 31 Queries, and it was the famous “31st Query” that, over the next two hundred years, stimulated a great deal of speculation and development on theories of chemical affinity.
