“The first English book of tables of compound interest” (De Morgan). “The tables were oriented to bankers and, for the most part, consist of how much interest is to be gained on various sums over different periods of time. One reform that was initiated by this work was the eventual decimalization of the British currency (after roughly 350 years)” (Tomash & Williams).
