This second part of the book presents the mathematical works of John Pell. Pell's published works were few: the Controversiae pars prima in 1647, An Introduction to Algebra in 1668, and the Table of 10000 square numbers in 1672. These books represent just a fraction of a lifetime of mathematical activity; the rest can be discovered from Pell's correspondence and his unpublished papers. The papers span the full fifty years of Pell's working life but are both thematically and chronologically in complete disarray.

Keywords:   mathematics, algebra, Pell's correspondence, square numbers, Pell's papers
