Comments: Called the first modern history of mathematics, Montucla's work traces the history of mathematics from antiquity to the end of the 17th century, and includes sections on optics, astronomy and mechanics, as well as infinitesimal calculus. There are no early histories more esteemed than his (DSB).

I have just received the copy of Mysterious Island by Jules Verne which I ordered previously. The book arrived in the condition in which it was sent and I am very impressed with the condition of the book. I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance and will certainly order again! Billy Dinwoodie, Johannesburg South Africa
