Two books I have recently bought are as follows:

Modern Algebra and the Rise of Mathematical Structures by Leo Corry.

and

Episodes in the History of Modern Algebra (1800 - 1950) by Jeremy Gray and Karen Parshall (Editors).

I have just started the book by Corry and it seems interesting.

I have skimmed the set of edited readings by gray and Parshall and it seems a bit daunting, but again interesting.

**Does anyone else have books or online sources on the history of algebra?**

I would also like to get some understanding of the history of algebraic topology ... but I had better learn some algebriac topology first ...
