Editorial Review Product Description Illustrated with more than a hundred diagrams and figures, this "mirror of past and present conditions in mathematics" will give students and historians a whole new appreciation for "1 + 1 = 2." Swiss-American author, educator, and mathematician FLORIAN CAJORI (1859-1930) was one of the world's most distinguished mathematical historians. Appointed to a specially created chair in the history of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley, he also wrote An Introduction to the Theory of Equations, A History of Elementary Mathematics, and The Chequered Career of Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler.

Not quite what I expected, but interesting and thorough It does do a very thorough job looking at ancient mathematical notation.How the Romans counted, how the Greeks counted, how the Hebrews counted, for example.And it doesn't stop there, it talks about how each civilization changed over time, etc.If you like the History Channel, and you like Math, you'll probably love this book. I'm still in search of a modern, concise reference for math notations.
Thorough, but stodgy and dated 1) This book is stodgy,written in a high scholarly style of the late 1920's.This is notsurprising since it _was_ written as a scholarly book in the late 1920's.Still, one could hope for a more accessible reading style. 2) The book isdated, written in the late 1920's.Again, not surprising, but one couldhope for a supplement that would cover the mostly minor changes in notationthat have occurred since then. 3) The book arranges the material only bythe area of mathematics used.When a given symbol has been used in anothersense, the book often but not always covers the other uses of the symbol inquestion. It would be nice if coverage by symbol were consistentlyavailable for _all_ symbols. In summary, a good book if you need theinformation, but one I would not recommend for casual reading in the areaof mathematics.
