Write The First Customer Review

A catalogue of the mathematical material in the West Point collection, inspired when the head of the mathematics department there realized that no one knew whether anything valuable was in it. In fact they range from works by Regiomonanus in 1496 to Darboux in 1917. The arrangement is chronological, and there is no index. The catalogue is supported by background essays and appendices with the 1803 catalog and a sampling of portraits and frontispieces in the collection.
