About this Item

A magnificent copy with the original cloth covers mounted and bound into full red calf by Rivière, with an elaborate gilt spine and morocco labels. First edition of Dodgson's only full mathematics textbook, which presents his ingenious method for computing the determinant of a square matrix, greatly simplifying what was until then a tedious process of multiple computations. Determinants are useful in the analysis and solution of linear equations. Emerging in connection with the theory of equations, by the nineteenth century determinants had become an increasingly significant area of mathematical study.Dodgson (1832-1898), a logician and lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford, is best known as the author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ,Through the Looking Glass, and The Hunting of the Snark, written under his pseudonym Lewis Carroll.
