VERY GOOD: There is some very, very minor wear on the box; otherwise, this is in beautiful condition. The pages are clean and the colors are vibrant. The second volume introductory essay is also in excellent condition.
The full title from the cover page of this books is: “The First Six Books of The Elements of Euclid in Which Coloured Diagrams and Symbols Are Used Instead of Letters for the Greater Ease of Learners By Oliver Byrne, Surveyor of Her Majesty’s Settlements in the Falkland Islands and Author of Numerous Mathematical Works.”
One should note that the book uses the original long, medial, or descending s (ſ) which is a form of the minuscule letter s, which was formerly used where s occurred in the middle or at the beginning of a word (e.g. “ſinfulneſs” “sinfulness”). It was used in the original 1847 text.
“Who is not familiar with the first famous sentences of Euclid’s Elements” ‘I. A point is that which has no parts. II. A line is length without breadth…’ The present volume by Oliver Bryne is the most unusual edition of Euclid ever published. Red, yellow, blue — and of course black — are the colours employed for the figures and diagrams, prompting the surprised reader to think of Mondrain and the Russian avant garde. This remarkable example of Victorian printing has been described as one of the most popular yet beautiful books of the 19th century. TASCHEN’s facsimile includes a second volume with an introductory essay by Swiss art historian Werner Oechslin.”—from the insert.

"The Volume Library, which is revised and updated annually, was designed for interested, well-informed people—students and adults who need an authoritative reference book for their home book-shelves, and parents who want to keep abreast of the subjects their children are studying in school."—Preface
"This book is based on lectures given to advance undergraduates and is well-suited as a textbook for a second course in complex function theory. Professionals will also find it valuable as a straightforward introduction to a subject which is finding widespread application throughout mathematics." — From the back cover
"The random-cluster model has emerged in recent years as a key tool in mathematical study of ferromagnetism. It may be viewed as an extension of percolation to include Ising and Potts models, and its analysis is a mix of arguments from probability and geometry." — From the back cover
Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics, Readings in Mathematics: Mathematical Masterpieces: Further Chronicles by the Explorers (Softcover)
"Experience the discovery of mathematics by reading the original work of some of the greatest minds throughout history." — From the back cover
"The book contains an amazing wealth of material relating to the algebra, geometry, and analysis of the nineteenth century.... Written with accurate historical perspective and clear exposition, this book is truly hard to put down." — Zentralblatt für Mathematik (review of the first edition, taken from the back cover)
"Written by a team of established mathematicians and professors, this work draws on the authors' experience in the classroom and as Olympiad coaches." — From the back cover
"In addition to its use as a companion volume to computer graphics or geometric modeling courses, this volume would also make a good mathematics reference book, in particular for practitioners in the field of geometric modeling. Furthermore, because of its broad coverage and emphasis on explanation it could even be used as text for introductory mathematics courses on some of the covered topics, such as topology (general, combinatorial, algebraic, and differential) and geometry (differential and algebraic)." — From the back cover
"The modern subject of differential forms subsumes classical vector calculus. This text presents differential forms from a geometric perspective accessible at the undergraduate level." — From the back cover
"This book will prove an invaluable resource to all those taking a first course in differential geometry, for their lectures, and for all others interested in the subject." — From the back cover
"Intended for a second course in Euclidean geometry, this volume is based on classical principles and can be used by students of mathematics as a supplementary text and by mechanical engineers as an aid to developing greater mathematical facility. It features 200 problems of increasing complexity with worked-out solutions, along with hints for additional problems." — From the back cover
"This new book is an excellent resource for those mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and scientific computing researchers who currently use Clifford algebra methods in their investigations. It is also appealing to those who would like to quickly become familiar with the theory and computational practice in some of the most recent and fascinating applications of Clifford algebras." — From the back cover
"The aim of the authors was to create a handbook that was conceptually simple and accessible to a wide circle of users providing each of them with an opportunity to learn to effectively solve the basic problems 'on splines' and with an introduction to the methods used." — From "On the structure of the handbook" (page 5)
"This is the definitive edition of one of the very greatest classics of all time—the full Euclid, not an abridgment. Utilizing the text established by Heiberg, Sir Thomas Heath encompasses almost 2500 years of mathematical and historical study upon Euclid." — From the back cover
Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics: Systems and Control: Nonholonomic Mechanics and Control (Hardback)
"This book is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in mathematics, physics and engineering who wish to learn this subject and for researchers in the area who want to enhance their techniques." — From the back cover
"The first translation into English of the standard work on the theory of numbers by one of the greatest masters of modern mathematical analysis, this classic was first published in 1801 in Latin. It has continued to be important to mathematicians as the source of the ideas from which modern number theory was developed and to students of the history of the mathematical sciences." — From the back cover
Student Mathematical Library, Volume 46: Lectures on Surfaces: (Almost) Everything You Wanted to Know about Them (Softcover)
"The assumed background is the standard calculus sequence, some linear algebra, and rudiments of ODE and real analysis. All notions are introduced and discussed, and virtually all results proved, based on this background." — From the back cover
"Since 1978, when the first Russian edition of this book appeared, geometrical methods in the theory of ordinary differential equations have become very popular. A lot of computer experiments have been performed and some theorems have been proved. In this edition, this progress is (partially) represented by some additions to the first English text." — From the Preface to the Second Edition
"This book is a concise, self-contained introduction to abstract algebra that stresses its unifying role in geometry and number theory." — From the back cover
"Geometric constructions have been a popular part of mathematics throughout history. The ancient Greeks made the subject an art, which was enriched by the medieval Arabs, but which required the algebra of the Renaissance for a thorough understanding. Through coordinate geometry, various geometric construction tools can be associated with various fields of real numbers. This book is about these associations." — From the back cover
"In the last sixty years, the use of the notion of category has led to a remarkable unification and simplification of mathematics. Conceptual Mathematics introduces this tool for the learning, development, and use of mathematics, to beginning students and also to practising mathematical scientists." — From the back cover
