Nicole Oresme's manuscripts from the 14th century show what may be one of the earliest uses of the plus sign "+".. In Europe in the early 15th century the letters "P" and "M" were generally used. The symbols (P with line p̄ for più, i.e., plus, and M with line m̄ for meno, i.e., minus) appeared for the first time in Luca Pacioli’s mathematics compendium, Summa de arithmetica, geometria. Sign your book on the title page or the blank page opposite the title. These are the most common places for an author to sign a book. A less common place to sign is inside the front cover. Where you sign the book is completely up to you and your personal preference%(17).

"When I walked into the lobby, and I saw that guy they'd nailed to the plus sign, I knew those people meant business!"

It depends on who you're giving the book to or who you're borrowing it from, and his or her sentiments as an owner of books. If giving it away as a gift, I would prefer as the recipient that you enclose a card along with the book or write a note on an enclosed bookmark, instead of writing in the book .

If you were a minus sign, you would subtract one number from another. You could subtract food and balloons. In every problem, you would find the difference. What else could you do if you were a minus sign? If you’re signing at a big event or on a special occasion (even more special than your book launch! – e.g. Cheltenham Literature Festival or World Book Day), you might like to write “World Book Day ” rather than just the date, to make it a memento of the event.
