About this Item

Third edition, much enlarged. 8vo. xxvii, 422 pp. Figs. , errata slip. Original red cloth, gilt spine; spine sunned, spine ends frayed, inner hinge cracked. Ownership signature of Michael J. Crowe. Very good. Tait was one of the most brilliant mathematicians of his age, and wrote a number of significant works on the subject. Having been asked to publish an elementary work on quaternions by Hamilton (on his death bed), Tait produced this excellent work, though later became embroiled in a controversial denouncement of Gibbs' vector methods.
