Number Words and Number Symbols by Karl Menninger

Publisher: Dover Publications, 1992
Paperback, pp.480

Condition: Near Fine. Clean, tight book, the spine shows signs of wear.

The historian of mathematics will find much to interest him here . . . while the casual reader is likely to be intrigued by the author’s superior narrative ability. . . This book is especially good on early counting and calculating devices: primitive tally sticks, the knotted cords of ancient Peru, the elaborate finger symbols once used for numbers, counting boards with movable counters, and of course the abacus.
