Leonhard Euler / von Emil A. Fellmann

Euler was not only by far the most productive mathematician in the history of mankind, but also one of the greatest scholars of all time. Cosmopolitan in the truest sense of the word; he lived during his first twenty years in Basel, was active altogether for more than thirty years in Petersburg and for a quarter of a century in Berlin; he attained, like only a few scholars, a degree of popularity and fame which may well be compared with that of Galilei, Newton, or Einstein.
