This literature guide is a bibliography of books, articles, and periodicals concerned with mathematical recreations. This is the third edition of a book which contained more than 2,000 entries in its original edition. Supplements have been added to bring the bibliography up-to-date. The guide is intended for the professional mathematician and the amateur who is interested in mathematics as a hobby. For this reason both popular articles and technical discussions are included. In many cases, entries are annotated as an aid to the user of this book. The author points out that this guide can serve as a place to look for source materials and will be helpful to students looking for project material and advanced students engaged in research. Also, the many non-technical articles will provide enjoyment for the layman interested in mathematics as a recreation. (FL)
