A Mathematicians Miscellany
by J. E. Littlewood
Publisher: Methuen And Company Limited 1953
Number of pages: 152
Anyone open to the idea of looking through a popular book on mathematics should be able to get on with this one. The book contains pieces of technical mathematics, on occasion pieces that only a professional mathematician can follow; these have been included as contributing to the full picture of the moment as viewed by the professional, but they can all be skipped without prejudice to the rest, and a coherent story will remain.

The goal of this work is to try to find the most general solution to many popular puzzles for which we normally heard only the particular problem. These mathematical puzzles often require specialized knowledge in some branch of Mathematics.
by Edwin A. Abbot - Seeley and Co.
The book gives some accessible and charming explanations of geometry and physics for the curious non-mathematician. Flatland imagines a two-dimensional world inhabited by sentient geometric shapes who think their planar world is all there is.
