I must first express my thanks to Lester H. Lange and Gerald L. Alexanderson for the inspiration to start this compilation.
I would especially like to thank: J. W. S. Cassels and D. T. Whiteside for providing many details about Cambridge and Trinity College; Anthony Edwards for details about Caius College and Cambridge; Manfred Stern and Michael Gebel for showing me around Halle; Dwight and Lois Paine for their report [Paine] on looking for monuments in Europe; Silke Anderson, Irving Finkel, Richard Parkinson and Christopher Walker for showing me material in the British Museum; Jean Varouchas for arranging visits to Nancy and taking me to Pont-à-Mousson; John Fauvel, Peter Ransom, Peter Schreiber and Garry Tee for many miscellaneous items.
I would like to thank: Chris Abbess, E. J. Aiton, Sue Andrew, A. M. Arthurs, Alessandra Aspes (Director of the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale di Verona), Cliff and Irene Ault, Mohammad Bagheri, Edmond Bakalar, Tom Banchoff, The Bank of England, Christoph Bandelow, P.

My apologies to anyone I have omitted -I have had letters from people whose only identification is an undecipherable signature and phone messages from people whose name and phone number are unintelligible.
Finally I would like to thank many people unknown to me - porters, guards, custodians, secretaries, librarians, etc., who have let me wander about or even shown me about sites and provided booklets, leaflets, prospectuses, etc.

The author's name is only shown on the library binding and no other details are given. It consists of two main sections.
Adam Riese, sein Leben, seine Rechenbücher und seine Art zu rechen (reprinted from the Programm der Progymnasial- und Realschulanstalt zu Annaberg 1855).
Die Coss von Adam Riese (reprinted from the same Programm for 1860).
