Luca Pacioli is widely considered the "Father of Accounting". Also, his treatise touches on a wide range of related topics from accounting ethics to cost accounting. Remarkably, in the solution for one problem he presented in the book he used an approximation of 100*log 2, more than 100 years before Napier and Briggs.
