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 Bourdon, is a work of singular excellence and merit. In France, it is one of the leading text books, and shortly after its publication, had passed through several editions. It has been translated, in part, by Professor De Morgan, of the London University, and it is now used in the University of Cambridge.
A translation was made by Lt. Ross, and published in 1831, since which time it has been adopted as a text book in the Military Academy, the University of the City of New York, Union College, Princeton College, Geneva College, and in Kenyon College, in Ohio.
The original work is a full and complete treatise on the subject of Algebra, and contains six hundred and seventy pages octavo. The time which is given to the study of Algebra, even in those seminaries 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 abandon it altogether.
