Hi Amer, :)

Here are some of the books that I have referred to find historical facts about mathematics.

1) The History of Mathematics: An Introduction: David Burton: 9780073051895: Amazon.com: Books

2) Dictionary of Scientific Biography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Also I found the MacTutor History of Mathematics archive quite useful on many occasions.

Kind Regards,
Sudharaka.

The Carl Boyer book from Dover is great for the history of Calculus in particular, but I don't know if that's of interest to you.

Several works by Morris Kline could be of interest.
