List of authors


This is a list of out-of-copyright mathematics books which can be found on sites like the Internet Archive (archive.org) or Project Gutenberg (gutenberg.org). The year of each publication is the year of the edition rather than the printing. The books are ordered by the author's surname. Where more than one different copy of the book could be located, the multiple links are numbered [1], [2], etc.

I have mostly omitted the following types of resources:

I've also skipped over some old mathematical physics and engineering books.

The books are not yet categorised. You may download the original file which contains some more information here. This is formatted in my Table::Readable format.

Some of the books have been inputted by various different institutions, so there may be other copies, scanned in a different manner, at the sites.
