This book is a perfect example of classic scientific masterpiece. The textbook is crystal clear, well organized, and thorough. "A Course of Pure Mathematics" is great for teaching yourself mathematics. Hardy is a sincerely elegant, fine, incisive thinker, and his unbounded enthusiasm for his subject, duly controlled by British understatement, shines through every page. He conveys the irresistible, almost addictive quality of math. This book is a little quaint. The terminology used by the author is a bit out of date, e.g. ‘sequences’ are ‘functions of a positive integral variable’. But that’s the thing that makes "A Course of Pure Mathematics" so charming. The book contains a lot of examples. This is a great book for teachers, tutors, and certainly students.

Classical treatise by Jean Baptiste Joseph Fourier (21 March 1768 – 16 May 1830), a French mathematician, Egyptologist and physicist. Fourier was the first to discuss in a comprehensive manner the various aspects of the flow of heat in bodies. Mathematical theory of heat conduction launched him into celebrity with the publication of his 1822 work “The Analytical Theory of Heat” (Théorie analytique de la chaleur). This masterpiece covered the hitherto unexplored field of heat propagation and contained the mathematical techniques which later were developed into a special branch of mathematics - Fourier analysis and Fourier integrals.
Having spent a number of years in Mexico, Carl Sofus Lumholtz (1851 – 1922), a Norwegian explorer and ethnographer, conducted several expeditions from 1890 through to 1910. It resulted later in his two-volume work, which offers an evocative look at peoples of northwestern Mexico, including the Cora, Tepehuán, and Pima Bajo; at the artifacts from the ancient shaft tomb and the Tarascan cultures.
