Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is the first book of its kind to cover the history of mathematics on such a scale and in such depth. It is a truly excellent publication, providing comprehensive coverage in a systematic way of the development of one of the most fundamental areas of knowledge.' - Reference Reviews

'This is a very fine, well-written and authoritative overview of the history of mathematics. It can be thoroughly recommended as a standard work in its field.' - The Year in Reference

'ivor GrattanULguinness has recruited a remarkable collection of historians, mathematicians and scientists to write this encyclopedia ... gives more complete coverage of the history of mathematics up to the beginning of the twentieth century than any other single reference work ... many excellently written articles. The encyclopedia's richness extends beyond individual details to its cumulative effect.' - Mathematical Intelligencer

Format: Hardcover
I have dozens, perhaps hundreds but certainly dozens, of math history books and this is one of the most if not THE most comprehensive math history books I own. It seems the real history lies within the history of math.
