What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition

Noted as "probably the first significant work of scientific bibliography", this volume deals with works from the invention of printing up until the time of publication, and contains "brief notices of a large number of works", providing an accurate record of the early history of publishing on arithmetic. In research for this text, Morgan surveyed the library of the Royal Society, works in the British Museum, the wares of specialist booksellers, and the private collections of himself and his friends to compile a chronological list of books from 1491 to 1846 (the final book being a work of his own), giving bibliographical details, a description of the contents, and sometimes comments on the mathematics on display. A first edition copy, in a brown cloth binding.

Condition

In cloth binding. Externally sound, there is rubbing to the extremities, as well as wear to the joints and minor loss to spine-label, with some further shelfwear and strain to hinges. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean throughout, though there are some instances of spotting to the endpages.

Very Good Indeed
