Hey Concavity and welcome to the forums.

A quick google search turned up the first element:

I know that there are lots of philosophy books written for Leibniz in many forms (commentary, analysis, his writings, etc), but I'd implore you to use google at a minimum :)

The Nobel prize winning astronomer Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar spent ten years working through the Principia and wrote this book. It's got good reviews on Amazon.
