detail 1603, from Fr. détail, from O.Fr. detail "small piece or quantity," from detaillier "cut in pieces," from de- "entirely" + taillier "to cut in pieces." Modern sense is from Fr. en détail "piece by piece, item by item" (as opposed to en gros), a commercial term used where we would today use retail. Military sense is 1708, from notion of "distribution in detail of the daily orders first given in general," including assignment of specific duties. The verb is from 1637.

As noted by Colin Fine and Kosmonaut in their comments below and by Piet Delport in his answer, "here is [plural]" is commonly used in casual English. Maybe it is more used than the grammatical form where the subject agrees with the verb (to be confirmed). Refer to Piet Deport's answer for a possible explanation.
