This book at present to historians of mathematics regarding achievements of the early Hindu mathematicians and our indebtedness to them. Our object in writing the present book has been to make up for this deficiency by giving a comprehensive account of the growth and development of the science of mathematics in India from the earliest known times down to the seventeenth century of the Christian era.

It has been decided to publish the book in two vols. The first vol. deals with the history of the numeral notations and of arithmetic. The second vol. is devoted to algebra, a science in which the ancient Hindus made remarkable progress.
