Mathematical Treasures - Isaac Barrow's Geometrical Lectures

Frank J. Swetz and Victor J. Katz



This is the title page to the English version of Isaac Barrow's Geometrical Lectures, which were originally given in his position as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University.  These lectures contain one of the earliest statements and proofs of what is today known as the fundamental theorem of calculus.
