This is the second edition, revised and enlarged. The desirability of havig a reliable one-volume history for the use of readers who cannote devote themselves to an intense study on the history of mathematics is generally recognized. On the other hand, it is a difficult task to give an adequate birds-eye-view of the development of mathematics from its earliest beginnings to the present time (published in 1919). In compiling this history the endeavor has been to use only the most reliable sources. Nevertheless, in covering such wide territory mistakes are sure to have crept in. References to the sources used in the revision are given as fully as the space limits would permit. Includes an a table of contents and index and a list of additions and corrections from the first edition. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 516 pages
