Dover Mathematics Newer Paperback 10 Book LOT #1 (Math Texts)
1 Dover Mathematics Newer Paperback 10 Book LOT #1 (Math Texts)
New York Dover paperback 

We recently acquired several personal-library collections of mathematics texts and are selling many of them in lots of 10 books, broken out together with similar books (ie. by type, by age, by publisher, by binding, etc.). In addition to classical mathematics, subjects could include engineering math, computer science, applied mathematics, etc., but all have a major emphasis on mathematics itself. This is Dover Mathematics Newer Paperback Lot #1. By newer, we mean the books have ISBNS so are from the 1970's and later. (We also sometimes have older, pre-ISBN Dover lots for sale). Includes: Mathematics for the Nonmathematician by Morris Kline; Character Theory of Finite Groups by I. Martin Isaacs; Fundamental Concepts of Geometry by Bruce E. Meserve; Statistics Manual by Edwin Crow et al; Famous Problems of Geometry and How to Solve Them by Benjamin Bold; Introduction to Probability by John Freund; Game Theory: A Nontechnical Introduction by Morton D. Davis//My Best Puzzles in Mathematics by Hubert Phillips; The Thriteen Books of the Elements, Volume 2 (Books III-IX) by Euclid; The Thriteen Books of the Elements, Volume 3 (Books X-XII) by Euclid.. Books are mostly in very good condition, with light wear. There may be an occasional ownership marking or similar on the endpages, but overall, these are nice, clean copies. Save on shipping, buy all ten books at once!

Please note that priority mail and international mail will run extra on this heavy item.
