About this Item

Volume one of the Neomonic Series. Small 8vo. viii, 40, 17 pp. Original printed wrappers, paper folder; cover lightly soiled. Burndy bookplate. Very good. Rare. Halsted was a member of the University of Texas at Austin Department of Pure and Applied Mathematics (1884-1903) where he taught noted mathematicians R. L. Moore and L. E. Dickson among other students. He explored the foundations of geometry and introduced Non-Euclidean geometry into the United States through his own work and his many important translations. "In a period when American mathematics had few distinguished names, the eccentric and sometimes spectacular Halsted established himself as an internationally known scholar, creative teacher, and promoter and popularize of mathematics. He was a member of and active participant in the major mathematical societies of the United States, England, Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and Russia. His activities penetrated deeply in three main fields: translations and commentaries on the works of Nicolai Lobachevski, János Bolyai, Girolamo Saccheri, and Henri Poincare; studies in the foundations of geometry; and criticisms of the slipshod presentations of the mathematical textbooks of his day." [DSB]. DSB Vol. VI, pp. 76-77. Bookseller Inventory # S9346
