 In the year 1716 Abraham de Moivre published his Doctrine of Chances, in which the subject of Mathematical Probability took several long strides forward. A few years later came his Treatise of Annuities. When the third (and final) edition of the Doctrine was published in 1756 it appeared in one volume together with a revised edition of the work on Annuities.

Walker. Table of Contents  The introduction
