The author has been guided by the conviction that it is much more important for the beginner to understand clearly what the processes of the Calculus mean, and what it can do for him, than to acquire facility in performing its operations.
by Augustus De Morgan - The Open Court Pub. Co.
The style is fluent and familiar; the treatment continuous and undogmatic. The main difficulties which encompass the early study of the Calculus are discussed in connexion with practical and historical illustrations which leave little to be desired.
by Paul Dawkins - Lamar University
These notes should be accessible to anyone wanting to learn Calculus I or needing a refresher in some of the early topics in calculus. Contents: Review; Limits; Derivatives; Applications of Derivatives; Integrals; Applications of Integrals.

A book for the mathematically eager who know some algebra. First published in 1910, overall a million copies have been sold. Most talk of continuum and its infinities is suppressed. A remarkable and user-friendly approach to the study of calculus.
