Number Theory, An approach through history from Hammurapi to Legendre
The book reviews over three millennia of research on numbers but the key focus is on 18th- and 19th-century mathematicians, in particular, Fermat, Euler, Lagrange and Legendre, whose work paved the way for modern number theory. It does not discuss much number theory after the Disquisitiones Arithmeticae by Gauss.
