Complete, but mixed, set: Vol. I is the third edition (which I once thought was simply a reprint but is in fact revised). Vol. II is the first edition. Vol. III is the second printing. Vol. IV is the Facsimile Reprint of the original 1908 ed. vi, 941, [1] pp [1st ed. contains viii + 804 pp]; ads; 114 figs. [107 figs. in 1st ed.]; lacks lithographed plate mentioned on title page [which is NOT called for on the title page of the 1st ed.]. Small perforation stamp on title page. Signature of Alexander Ziwet on title page (also his bookplate). Contemporary 3/4-leather and boards. Pieces of leather missing at top and bottom of spine. Corners of covers worn. Joints worn and cracking. Marginal yellowing of text leaves. A few ink notes in margins. Vol. II: x, 863 pp; 184 figs. Later buckram. Text leaves browned (especially title page). Vol. III: x, 923 pp; 147 figs. Later buckram (matches Vol. II). Vol. IV: 1 leaf + Facsimile Reprint [vi, 1,113 pp; 100 figs.]. Original cloth. Very Good. 'This mammoth effort, totalling nearly 3,000 pages in four volumes, is still useful although now somewhat outdated. Volume I . emphasizes Greek mathematics, but devotes chapters to the Romans, Hindus, Chinese and Arabs, and ends with medieval mathematics, including a section on Gerbert. Volume II (1200-1668) is divided into time periods, either by century or half-century, and ends with the work of Kepler, Cavalieri, Descartes, Fermat, Roberval, Torricelli, Wallis, Pascal, Sluse, Hudde, et al. Volume III . is concerned primarily with the invention and development of the calculus by Newton, Leibniz, and their various adherents, although there are sections on combinatorial analysis, infinite series, algebra, number theory, analytic geometry, and the enormous contributions of Euler. Volume IV (1759-1799) was written with the collaboration of a number of Cantor's contemporaries . It covers various topics in separate chapters by given authors (for example, Vivanti did the longest section, on 'Infinitesimalrechnung'), and ends with a 20-page general overview of mathematics between 1758 and 1799 by M. Cantor. There are two pages of corrections, and an index (both name and subject)' (Dauben, no 74). '[D]espite many contemporary emendations, [it] has not been equaled in content and extent. . [It] gave a definite impetus to the development of the history of mathematics in general as a scholarly discipline' (Dauben, no. 466; but see below). 'Extensive studies of Renaissance algebraists on pp. 1-648 [in Vol. II]' (Dauben, no. 622; see also nos. 243, 327). 'After completing the third volume Cantor realised that, at the age of 69, he was not up to the task of completing another volume, so at the Congress of 1904 in Heidelberg he organised a team with nine further contributors to collaborate on the fourth volume. As editor-in-chief Cantor set high standards and insisted that the style and impartiality of the first three volumes be retained' (MacTutor History of Mathematics Web site). For Cantor, also see F. Cajori, 'Moritz Cantor, The historian of mathematics' (Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 26 (1920), 21-28), and J. E. Hofmann's article in D.S.B. III: 58-59, from which Dauben directly lifted some of his comments about Cantor's Vorlesungen (e.g., the one about the historical impetus it provided). N° de ref. de la librería D00416
