Defined even at the present time as "unsurpassed," this heritage of mathematical notation stretching again to the Babylonians and Egyptians is among the such a lot finished written. In awesome volumes-first released in 1928-9-distinguished mathematician Florian Cajori exhibits the beginning, evolution, and dissemination of every image and the contest it confronted in its upward push to attractiveness or fall into obscurity. Illustrated with greater than 100 diagrams and figures, this "mirror of earlier and current stipulations in arithmetic" will provide scholars and historians an entire new appreciation for "1 + 1 = 2.
