viii, 299 p. 2 port. (incl. front.) diagrs. index, Originally published: Chicago ; London : The Open Court Pub. Co., 1919. (The Open court series of classics of science and philosophy ; no. 5). Florian Cajori was one of the most celebrated historians of mathematics in his day. He emigrated to the United States at the age of sixteen. He received a Ph.D. at Tulane University, where he taught for a few years before being driven north by his health. He taught at Colorado College, where he founded the Colorado College Scientific Society. Even today his History of Mathematical Notations (1928-29) has been described as "unsurpassed." In 1918, he was appointed to a specially created chair in history of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. He remained in Berkeley, California until his death in 1930. A History of the Conception of Limites and Fluxions in Great Britain from Newton to Woodhouse is considered an important treatise, with an excellent index and thoroughly researched. Chapter?s cover Newton?s publications prior to 1734, as well as chapters on Jurin, Berkeley, Maclaurin, and dozens of other British Mathematicians of the period. (1633x). Fine, new from publisher.

Khuwarizmi, Muòhammad ibn Musá, fl. 813-846. Robert, of Chester, fl. 1143. Karpinski, Louis Charles, 1878-1956  
Robert of Chester's Latin translation of the Algebra of Al-Khowarizmi with an introduction, critical notes and an English version by Louis Charles Karpinski

Publisher: Mansfield Centre, Conn., Martino Pub., 2006.
vii, 164, [6] p., illus.. index; 24 cm. Originally published: New York: Macmillan, 1915. It is much more than a reprint of Robert of Chester's Latin translation from the Arabic, accompanied by a translation into English. It contains in outline the development of algebra before the time of Al-Khowarizmi, an account of Al-Khowarizmi's Algebra and Arithmetic, and their bearing upon the development of mathematics. Much biographical detail is gleaned from out-of-the-way sources, pertaining to Al-Khowarizmi, Robert of Chester and other medieval writers who prepared translations of, or were directly influenced by, the algebra of the great Mohammedan. Robert of Chester's Latin translation was made in the twelfth century. The different extant manuscripts are compared and deviations from the text of Scheybl, which is followed in this edition, are given in footnotes with a minutia that seems almost excessive. A Latin glossary assists the reader in making out the medieval Latin. Added interest is secured by photographic reproductions of pages from the three most complete manuscripts of Robert of Chester's translation. Neither time nor expense has been spared in making the monograph a minute yet attractive study of the earliest translation into Latin of the famous Arabic text. Stock#1307x. Fine, new from publisher / no dj.
