Description: François Viète's collected works, digitized by Elsevier, show how mathematicians used their books in the past: by writing directly on them as they worked through their questions. Viète, an innovator in the standardization of algebra, published Opera Mathematica in 1646 with the House of Elzevier, a Dutch family publishing house from which modern publisher Elsevier takes its name.
