FROM THE LIBRARY OF --AND SIGNED IN BOTH VOLUMES BY-- JACK ROTH, THE RENOWNED MATHEMATICIAN (PHD DUKE, PROF. U.

A CURIOUS FIGURE AND A MAN WHO INCORPORATED ARCANE PRINCIPLES OF MATHEMATICS (ASYMMETRY, PROPORTION, ETC.) IN MANY OF HIS PAINTINGS. A solid copy to boot of the 1961 stated 2nd printings, complete in 2 volumes. Both octavo volumes tight and VG in their orange wrappers, with light wear along the panel edges. Vol. I: Measures and Integrals; Vol. II: The Geometry of Orthogonal Spaces. #21 and #22 in Princeton's formidable "Annals of Mathematics Studies" series.
