Descripción

First Edition of "probably the first significant work of scientific bibliography" (D.S.B.). xxviii, 124 pp. Original cloth. Joints very slightly worn in a few spots. Old signature on pastedown. Else Very Good. De Morgan was “steeped in the history of mathematics. . He believed that the work of both minor and major mathematicians was essential for an assessment of mathematical development, a principle shown most clearly in his Arithmetical Books. This work describes the many arithmetical books in the author’s possession, refers to the work of 1,580 arithmeticians, and contains detailed digressions on such subjects as the length of a foot and the authorship of the popular Cocker’s Arithmetic. De Morgan’s book was written at a time when accurate bibliography was in its infancy and was probably the first significant work of scientific bibliography” (D.S.B). N° de ref. de la librería 08636
