Ramanujan: Twelve Lectures on Subjects Suggested by His Life and Work

Cambridge, England: Cambridge University Press, 1940. Cloth. The uncommon 1940 1st edition of this remarkable collection of lectures by Cambridge mathematician G.H. Hardy on his nurturing and mentoring of and his close work with the great Indian mathematical prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan (1887-1920), who died at only 33 but left behind an indelible legacy in the world of 20th century mathematics. Solid and VG+ in its navy-blue cloth, with light soiling and spotting at the panels. Internally, mild offsetting to the endpapers and a bit of light foxing at the preliminaries. Quarto, 236 pgs. Given Hardy's intense personal and professional relationship with Ramanujan, his "twelve lectures on subjects suggested by [Ramanjun's] life and work" may offer, even to this day, the most intimate glimpse of Ramanujan that the world has. Very Good +. Item #19279
