The oldest known mathematical table was found in the ancient Sumerian city

of Shuruppag in southern Iraq. Since then, tables have been an important

feature of mathematical activity and are important precursors to modern

computing and information processing. This book contains a series of

articles summarizing the history of mathematical tables from earliest times

until the late twentieth century. It covers mathematical tables (the most

important computing aid for several hundred years until 1960s), data tables

(i.e. Census tables), professional tables (ie. Insurance tables), and

spreadsheets-the most recent tabular innovation. The book is presented in a

scholarly yet accessible way, making appropriate use of text boxes and

illustrations. Each chapter has a frontispiece featuring a table along with

a small illustration of the source where the table was first displayed. Most

chapters have sidebars telling a short "story" or history relating to the

chapter. The aim of this edited volume is to capture the history of tables

through eleven chapters written by subject specialists. The contributors

describe the various information processing techniques and artifacts whose

unifying concept is "the mathematical table".
