A Bibliography of Recreational Mathematics, Volume 1. Fourth Edition.
Schaaf, William L.
This book is a partially annotated bibliography of books, articles, and periodicals concerned with mathematical games, puzzles, and amusements. It is a reprinting of Volume 1 of a three-volume series. This volume, originally published in 1955, treats problems and recreations which have been important in the history of mathematics as well as some of more modern invention. The book is intended for use by both professional and amateur mathematicians. Works on recreational mathematics are listed in eight broad categories: general works, arithmetic and algebraic recreations, geometric recreations, assorted recreations, magic squares, the Pythagorean relationship, famous problems of antiquity, and mathematical miscellanies.
