History of the development of calculus?

Hi, philosophy graduate student here, with a math undergrad and some grad-level courses taken then. I’m working through some of the ways post-Kantian German philosophy took up then-contemporary mathematics. Does anyone have a good history of mathematics from ~1650–1830, especially with a view to developments in the concept of the infinitesimal (and ultimately Cauchy’s move to reject it in favor of limits, though implicitly)? Technical is fine (actually I’d prefer it). Articles or books, in English or German. Also if anyone has any recommendations for articles or books on Hegel and mathematics, I’d love to know. Most of what I’ve found or been recommended by faculty is quite sparse.

Thanks in advance 🙂
