Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION, published posthumously by Joseph Liouville, the editor of the journal. Galois (1811-1832) died young but he had already published papers on number theory. "Galois's terse style, combined with the great originality of his thought and the modernity of his conceptions, contributed as much as the delay in publication to the length of time that passed before Galois's work was understood, recognized at its true worth, and fully developed... It was only with the publication in 1866 of the third edition of Alfred Serret's Cours d'algébre supérieure and, in 1870, of Camille Jordan's Traité des substitutions that group theory and the whole of Galois's oeuvre were truly integrated into the body of mathematics" (DSB V, p.264).
