I won't spend much time on this history but if you would like a Brief history on this Day I took and excerpt from International Accounting Day website, please see below it is a direct quote.
"On November 10, 1494, a book titled Summa de Arithmetica, Geometria, Proportioni et Proportionalita (Everything About Arithmetic, Geometry and Proportion) was published in Venice. This was the first book that aimed to summarize the mathematical knowledge of those days. One of the tractatus of the Summa, entitled "Particularis de computis et scripturis" (About accounts and other writings) provides a detailed description of Venetian book-keeping. This was the first printed essay on doubleentry bookkeeping - called "Method of Venice" - and was direct base of some widespread works on mercantile accounting. The author of the book was Italian mathematician and Franciscan friar Luca Bartolomeo de Pacioli. Although double-entry bookkeeping had been around for centuries, Pacioli’s 27-page treatise on the subject has earned him the title “The Father of Modern Accounting.” The system he published included most of the accounting cycle as we know it today."
