The Education of T.C. Mits. Lillian R. Lieber.

The Education of T.C. Mits

Norton, 1944. Lieber, Hugh Gray. Cloth. An unusual and playful exploration of the joys of mathematics with imaginative Prelustsky-like illustrations by the author's husband. Prose is written in short lines like a free verse poem, which the author claims is to "facilitate rapid reading,/and everyone/is in a hurry/nowadays." Albert Einstein was quoted as an admirer of the whimsical concept: "I have studied with pleasure [this] new book…Beautiful examples…Illuminating. I am convinced that [Lieber's] original enterprise will get the recognition it so richly deserves." Contemporary sticker from Hampel's Bookshop in Milwaukee inside front cover. Fine. Item #276

Price: $35.00
