I'm interested in the history of calculus & analysis and looking for books that examine in some detail the history of writings on these subjects, mainly the history of the 17th-century "Treatise of Fluxions" to the 19th-c. "Cours d' Analyse".

Which works were significant and why? Which works, now forgotten, can still be useful in the understanding of the revolutionary rise of infinitesimal analysis?

Personal favorites would be welcome too. Any suggestions?
