First Edition. Frontisportrait, 3 leaves, 31 pp; 16 plates. Original printed wrappers (also published in cloth-backed printed boards). Wrappers quite worn around edges; contents Very Good. 'This is an example of crank literature. The first clue is that the frontispiece is a picture of the author. The second is that the work is 'Printed for the author.' The third is that Diagram 16 claims that pi equals 3949/27889 exactly. Serious mathematicians don't do such things. Nonetheless, the book does have value as a curiosity. Students should be shown things like this as a simple exercise in sorting the wheat from the chaff in the vast mathematical literature. Individuals interested in this topic should consult Mathematical Cranks (1994) and The Trisectors (1994), both by Underwood Dudley' (American University Rare Book Room Web site; text by V. Frederick Rickey). Reprinted by the University of Michigan in 2005. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 17164
