"Aristotle, Galileo, Kepler, Newton -- you know the names, here's the book that will tell you what they really did. It covers in detail the historical development of mathematics and includes the early major theorists and their discoveries. The basis of arithmetic starts with the ancient Greeks, including Plato and the introduction of geometry in the method of analysis. The use of Arabic numerals brought math lightyears into the future, and was critical in the development of both commerce and science. The introduction of calculus helped make space travel possible, while the abacus was the precursor of the calculator. There is Leonardo da Vinci, whose fame as an artist has overshadowed his achievements as a mathematician; Pascal, who laid down the principles of the theory of probabilities; and Fermat and his intriguing theorem. Without these pioneers, our lives would be very different, because the growth of our society is interwoven with that of mathematics. And this is how it began. Book jacket."--Jacket

Trinity College was founded in 1546 by Henry VIII, who merged two older institutions, Michaelhouse and the King's Hall. The beauty of Trinity's courts attracts visitors from around the world, but the College is also a thriving, modern community. This history, published in 1906, covers the period from the foundation until the early Victorian era, and will appeal to those interested in the history of both the college and the University. It is divided into chronological chapters, each illustrated by the series editor, Edmund H. New. As Rouse Ball states, '... Trinity College Cambridge is the largest collegiate foundation at either of the ancient universities, and, few, if any visitors to Cambridge leave without walking through its courts. This booklet is written in the belief that there are many such visitors who would like to know rather more about the College than can be learnt from a stroll round its buildings.'
