About this Item

The title page, which has apparently been mounted, is a mess (see photo), with soiling, a patch, two holes, and an apparent attempt at bleaching; the binding is later buckram with slightly loose hinges; the remainder of the book, however, is in very good condition, and complete except for the possible absence of one folding plate: there are 31 plates, - the title page calls for 32. The plates numbered 1-8 concern geometry. The remaining plates are lettered A through X, with J and U omitted, as might be expected in printing of this time. The final plate is unlettered. The plates have not been abused, and there is no sign of removal of a plate. . 213 pages, plus 3 pages of adverts, and folding copper plates. Bookseller Inventory # 44885

Store Description

Founded in 1971 by Wayne Somers, a former college library bibliographer, Hammer Mountain Book Halls began as a catalogue business specializing in out-of-print scholarly books. We chose the name for euphony and because we occupied the second-highest point in the county, the top of a 1,200 foot hill. Since 1981, we've also operated "W. Somers, Bookseller," a retail book shop with a constantly changing general stock of books not listed on the Internet. It's open Monday-Friday, 11-5, and Saturday, 10-5; browsers are welcome. We've been members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of American since 1977. We're also the publisher and sole source of the invaluable "Bibliography Finder for American Authors," by Wayne Somers and Ilse Pinkus, which you can buy for a pittance through Advanced Book Exchange.
