I have therefore taken pains, to show the course of the argument in sufficient detail to enable a competent mathematician to grasp the method used and to apply it, if he will, in the most significant cases, to other similar investigations.

Mathematicians, then, will rejoice to find Heath back in print and accessible after many years. The coverage is everywhere thorough and judicious; but heath is not content with plain exposition: It is a defect in the existing histories that, and the main propositions proved in, the great treatises of Archimedes and Apollonius, while they state generally the contents of, they make little attempt to describe the procedure by which the results are obtained.
