0 Reviews

The subject-matter of this book is a historical summary of the
development of mathematics, illustrated by the lives and discoveries of
those to whom the progress of the science is mainly due. It may serve as
an introduction to more elaborate works on the subject, but primarily
it is intended to give a short and popular account of those leading facts
in the history of mathematics which many who are unwilling, or have
not the time, to study it systematically may yet desire to know.
