Geschichte der Elementar-Mathematik in systematischer Darstellung: mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Fachwörter

Abstract

IT is a remarkable testimony to the excellence of this work that a third edition should have been called for within nine years of the issue of the first volume of the second edition (1921). The first edition, in two volumes, appeared in the years 1902 and 1903 and contained about eight hundred pages. The second edition was published in seven parts or volumes (1921-24) and ran to nearly thirteen hundred pages in all, the increase being due to the incorporation of the results of new researches into the history of mathematics carried out in the meantime. The first part of the present edition contains 222 pages, as compared with the 177 pages of the first part of the second edition, which again shows that the author has included a large amount of fresh material.
