Description of "A History of Probability (1865) - Vol. 1 "

The theory of probability and statistics emerged much later in the history of mathematics, as compared to trigonometry or algebra. Its roots lie - like a lot of science, in astronomy. However, in the modern world it has been applied to almost every area of science, economics and society. Isaac Todhunter's book is the definitive work on the subject, but some familiarity with high-school mathematics is required.

This book has been printed in two parts, so it should be purchased with Vol. 2
