"The authors present the history of analysis as near to the historical sources as is possible from the point of view of readability. The book includes comprehensive bibliographies, providing useful listings of the original literature. Mathematical examples are carefully chosen so that readers with a very modest background in mathematics may follow them."--Jacket.
