Subject: Re: Math history

There is a text that you might find in a college library:  "A concise History
of Mathematics" by Dirk J. Struik. Dover Publications.most published it
recently in 1987.

Another way to look at the history of mathematics is to take a topic and hit
the highlights on the topic. William Dunham has written a text: "Journey
Through Genius" (The great Theorems of Mathematics). The time is from
Hippocrates to Cantor. Twelve theorems are mentioned.   This text was
published by John Wiley in 1990.

I hope that I have given you some ideas.
