Bingham, "Wright, Sir Edward Maitland". Hardy is one of greatest and most influential English mathematicians of the twentieth century, and Wright, one of his many students, was a notable mathematician working principally in number theory over the course of his long career. The Theory of Numbers was developed out of a course of lectures delivered by Hardy and Wright at their respective institutions (Cambridge and Aberdeen). The book has been viewed since its publication as the classic work in elementary number theory and is widely viewed as one of Hardy's three masterpieces. The Theory of Numbers is still in print (currently in its sixth edition) and remains in use in university courses on number theory. An exceptional copy of one of the milestones of twentieth-century mathematical exposition. Very near Fine / Near Fine. Item #00008946
