Excerpt from Elements of Algebra: Translated From the French of M. Bourdon; Revised and Adapted to the Courses of Mathematical Instruction in the United States
The Treatise on Algebra, by M. Bourdon, is a work of singular excellence and merit. In France, it is one of the leading text books. Shortly after its first publication, it passed through several editions, and has formed the basis of every subsequent work on the subject of Algebra.
The original work is, however, a full and complete treatise on the subject of Algebra, the later editions containing about eight hundred pages octavo. The time which is given to the study of Algebra, in this country, even in those semin aries where the course of mathematics is the fullest, is too short to accomplish so voluminous a work, and hence it has been found necessary either to modify it, or to abandon it al together.
