Lectures on Classical Mechanics
by John C. Baez - University of California
These are course notes for a mathematics graduate course on classical mechanics. The author started with the Lagrangian approach, with a heavy emphasis on action principles, and derived the Hamiltonian approach from that.

Theoretical Kinematics
by Oene Bottema, Bernard Roth - Dover Publications
An important reference for any researcher in kinematics, it covers many important results for analysis and design of mechanisms. The authors used the adjective theoretical in the title in order to distinguish the subject from applied kinematics.

Classical Mechanics
- Wikibooks
Classical mechanics is the study of the motion of bodies based upon Isaac Newton's famous laws of mechanics. The reader should be comfortable with basic physics concepts. Familiarity with geometry, algebra, and calculus is a must.
