About this Item

First Edition. Frontispiece, 422 pp; 173 figs. Original cloth. Very Good+. 'Brilliant analytic summary. . . . Best over-all analysis' (D. S. B. I: 230-31). 'An edition and study of Archimedes' known works in which theorems are translated literally while a special notation, avoiding some of the implications of algebraic symbolism, is used to present paraphrases of the proofs. Subsidiary lemmas in the various treatises are grouped together in one chapter. Two chapters on the life of Archimedes and the tradition of the manuscripts open this important study' (Joseph Dauben, The History of Mathematics from Antiquity to the Present: A Selective Bibliography, no. 211). Acta Historica Scientiarum Naturalium et Medicinalium, Vol. 12. Bookseller Inventory # 13961
