Summa de Arithmetica - Luca Paccioli
Luca Paccioli - Summa de Arithmetica, Geometrica, Proportioni et Proportionalita (Everything about Arithmetic, Geometry, and Proportion) printed in Latin in 1494
This Link has more pictures of various pages from the Summa Book.
Having just learnt about this Renaissance man LUCA PACCIOLI today, I did some more research. I cannot believe I never heard of this fellow before today. He apparently was known as the father of Accounting, because he was the first to write down the methods of Double Entry Accounting. As for me, I tried accounting, but never got past the Trial Balance. And while I am not a fan of mathematics, I do like reading about the History of maths & science.
