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.

by Charles B. Clapham - Chapman & Hall
This book is an endeavour to treat the elementary portions of Practical Mathematics in a thorough and practical manner and with a sufficient amount of engineering application, suitable for elementary students of technical schools and for home study.
by Lewis Carroll - MacMillan
This is a short text Carroll wrote to introduce children to logical reasoning, specifically set logic. The text does a good job of explaining basic logical theory in a way that children can understand. A great brain teaser for readers of all ages.
by Lewis Carroll - Macmillan and co
Here you see Carroll the mathematician at his playful best. This isn't about modern symbolic logic but about ways of expressing classical logic with symbols. It's loaded with amusing problems to delight any mathematical puzzler.
by Dmitry Fuchs, Sergei Tabachnikov - American Mathematical Society
This book will be of interest to anyone who likes mathematics, from high school students to accomplished researchers. We do not promise an easy ride: it will take a considerable effort from the reader to follow the details of the arguments.
