Excerpt from A History of the Mathematical Theory of Probability

The favourable reception which has been granted to (my History of the Calculus of Variations during the Nineteenth Century has encouraged me to undertake another work of the same kind. The subject to which I now invite attention has high claims to consideration on account of the subtle problems which it involves, the valuable contributions to analysis which it has produced, its important practical applications, and the eminence of those who have cultivated it.

Book Description:

An indefatigable mathematician and university teacher at Cambridge, Isaac Todhunter (1820-84) is best remembered for his successful textbooks. This 1865 publication traces the progress of probability theory from its roots in the seventeenth century through to the early nineteenth century and Pierre-Simon Laplace's wide-ranging coverage of the subject.
