History of modules in mathematics ...

  1. Feb 9, 2017 #1
    I would like to read a book, the chapter of a book or a web site article (preferably comprehensive) on the history of the concept of a module and the development of the theory of modules in mathematics ...

    Can anyone help with some good references ...

    nLab has a good rundown on the topic but not really history. However they have a reference at the bottom to a textbook that might help
