The fourth edition of this scholarly bibliography of early arithmetic books and manuscripts is profusely illustrated, including various Addenda and also including in its entirety Augustus De Morgan's Arithmetical Books. Extensively cross-referenced and with a new Index. The text is in English.


"[David Eugene Smith's bibliography of early arithmetic books] is a condensed history of arithmetic during its formative period. The numerous notes not only point out the significant features ... but they form a comparative study of the subject from many points of view ... [Smith's] special fitness is known to practically every student of the history of mathematics and his scholarship stamps with authority all of his productions."
