Accountant Day is fast approaching.
November 10 is the day we accountants commemorate a top 25 event in the world’s history–publishing the first book on accounting.
On November 10, 1494, volume 2 of Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita (Everything About Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) was published. It is in volume 2 of the Summa that Luca Pacioli included a description of the bookkeeping/accounting system of Venice. In honor of this contribution, Pacioli has carried for centuries the title of Father of Accounting.
This year, I’ve decided to exhibit a collection of pencil stubs.
