A budget of paradoxes by
Augustus De Morgan(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1915 and 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An important figure in the development of modern mathematical logic and abstract algebra, Augustus De Morgan (180671) was also a witty writer who made a hobby of collecting evidence of paradoxical and illogical thinking from historical sources as well as contemporary pamphlets and periodicals. Based on articles that had appeared in The Athenaeum during his lifetime, this work was edited by his widow and published in book form in 1872. It parades all varieties of crackpot, from circlesquarers to inventors of perpetual motion machines, all for the reader's entertainment and education. Filled with anecdotes, personal opinions and 'squibs' of every kind, the book remains enjoyable reading for those who are amused rather than appalled by the human condition. Also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection are the Memoir of Augustus De Morgan (1882), prepared by his wife, and his ambitious Formal Logic (1847)

The HinduArabic numerals by
David Eugene Smith(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The numbers that we call Arabic are so familiar throughout Europe and the Americas that it can be difficult to realize that their general acceptance in commercial transactions is a matter of only the last four centuries and they still remain unknown in parts of the world. In this volume, one of the earliest texts to trace the origin and development of our number system, two distinguished mathematicians collaborated to bring together many fragmentary narrations to produce a concise history of HinduArabic numerals. Clearly and succinctly, they recount the labors of scholars who have studied the
