The discussion of Koch's snowflake curve and David Masunaga's list of
"classic" fractal papers calls to mind that Henry Smith seems in essence
to have anticipated Cantor, Koch and others in his 1875 paper 'On the
integration of discontinuous functions' (Proceedings of the London
Mathematical Society 6 (1875), 140-153). Smith is not mentioned in Jean-Luc
Chabert's 1990 Historia Mathematica article 'Un demi-siecle de fractales
1870-1920', but there is some discussion of this in the recent book 'Oxford
figures; 800 years of the mathematical sciences' (OUP 2000, pp.213-214), and
fuller discussion in Keith Hannabuss's article 'Forgotten fractals',
Mathematical Intelligencer 18 (3) (1996), 28-31.
