This book is not only a fascinating introduction to the number concept and to numbers themselves but also a multifaceted linguistic and historic analysis of how numbers have evolved in many cultures. A noted scholar draws upon evidence from history, literature, philosophy, and ethnology to recount the oral, written, and symbolic development of numbers. "The historian of mathematics will find much to interest him." — Library Journal
