The Education of T.C. Mits

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. Very good. Item #276

Price: $35.00
