This biography of Gauss, by far the most comprehensive in English, is the work
of a professor of German, G. Waldo Dunnington, who devoted most of his scholarly
career to studying the life of Germany's greatest mathematician. The author was
inspired to pursue this project at the age of twelve when he learned from his
teacher in Missouri that no full biography of Gauss existed at the time. His
teacher was Gauss's great granddaughter, Minna Waldeck Gauss. Long out of print
and almost impossible to find on the used book market, this valuable piece of
scholarship is being reissued in an augmented form with introductory remarks, an
expanded and updated bibliography, and a commentary on Gauss's mathematical
diary, by the eminent British mathematical historian, Jeremy Gray.
