I am looking for some good physics book(s) which shows the development of physics ideas from antiquity since 1850 or 1900 or something like that.
The book should covers all "elementary" topics (Quantum Mechanics/more advanced topics etc are not needed) i.e those which are taught at high school senior/beginning college first year topic (ie mechanics, thermodynamics, introductory electrodynamics, optics and bunch of small topics) . Also, note that I will use the book to read alongside (and occasionally to supplement) Halliday and Resnick, so I am not looking for books with pop sci etc, books with actual mathematical contents are appreciated.
For an example what I'm looking: History of mechanics by Ernst Mach almost fits, but I don't like two aspects of it (it's way too terse, and honestly I don't have the time to read ~600 page on just the history of mechanics, something like ~100 pages at max would be okay)
Since this will be a community wiki soon (I have flagged it to make it), please recommend one book per post, so votes have some meaning. Also there is a bit of confusion below, I'm not looking for books just on the history of mechanics, I am looking for all other topics too.
