My very first book review (of a book on the history of mathematical notation) has recently appeared in Science, and this blog seemed a good place for a little publicity. Here are the links to the article: http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/rapidpdf/345/6192/41-a?ijkey=WAsze/KccpzYs&keytype=ref&siteid=sci (pdf) — http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/345/6192/41-a?ijkey=WAsze/KccpzYs&keytype=ref&siteid=sci (full text).

Thank you for reading!

P. S.: A minor comment – there might be a typo in the caption to the illustration, as the title of Reisch’s work seems to be Margarita Philosophica (http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margarita_Philosophica for German-friendly readers).
