This final chapter looks at some of the reactions to A treatise of algebra immediately after its publication and since, and draws together a few observations on Wallis' perspective on algebra and on history. In general Wallis' history drew more attention than his mathematics. That there were a number of criticisms in this respect can be inferred from revisions he made when the book was translated into Latin in 1693.

Keywords:   John Wallis, A treatise of algebra, algebra, mathematics
