    The analysis of the evolution of scientific research on accountancy is extremely important as one can only judge the present phenomena that characterize a certain field on the basis of a solid historical background. The aim of this paper is to offer an overview of the evolution of accountancy from the fifteenth century to the twentieth century, that is from the emergence of the various forms of writing and paper discovery to the use of logismography and, further on, the elaboration of balance sheet theories.
