This lovingly written and exquisitely crafted book provides a detailed introduction to abstract algebra. First published in 1964, it is still an excellent textbook and will probably never go out of date.
The text does not assume any background beyond high school math, but the mathematics it covers is intense and detailed. This is a book for college math majors, not for someone who is looking for a casual introduction to the subject.
