**Mathematical Recreations & Essays (11E) ** written by
** W. W. Rouse Ball, H. S. M. Coxeter **.

This classic work offers scores of stimulating, mind-expanding games and puzzles: arithmetical and geometrical problems, chessboard recreations, magic squares, map-coloring problems, cryptography and cryptanalysis, much more. "A must to add to your mathematics library." — The Mathematics Teacher. Index. References for Further Study. Includes 150 black-and-white line illustrations.

This book contains descriptions of various problems of the kind usually termed Mathematical Recreations, and a few Essays on some analogous questions. The author have excluded all matter which involves advanced mathematics. The author hasten to add that the conclusions are of no practical use, and that most of the results are not new. If therefore the reader proceeds further he is at least forewarned. This book contains fourteen chapters, of which the subjects are shown in the Table of Contents.

**About Author :- **

The author **Harold Scott MacDonald "Donald" Coxeter **, CC, FRS, FRSC (1907–2003) British-born Canadian geometer. He is regarded as one of the greatest geometers of the 20th century.

Coxeter was born in Kensington to Harold Samuel Coxeter and Lucy (née Gee). His father had taken over the family business of Coxeter & Son, manufacturers of surgical instruments and compressed gases (including a mechanism for anaesthetising surgical patients with nitrous oxide), but was able to retire early and focus on sculpting and baritone singing; Lucy Coxeter was a portrait and landscape painter who had attended the Royal Academy of Arts. A maternal cousin was the architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. He worked for 60 years at the University of Toronto and published twelve books.

Since 1978, the Canadian Mathematical Society have awarded the Coxeter–James Prize in his honor. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1950 and in 1997 he was awarded their Sylvester Medal. In 1990, he became a Foreign Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and in 1997 was made a Companion of the Order of Canada. In 1973 he received the Jeffery–Williams Prize. A festschrift in his honour, The Geometric Vein, was published in 1982. It contained 41 essays on geometry, based on a symposium for Coxeter held at Toronto in 1979.
