Review Quotes
"The academy is to be congratulated on having completed the publication of its most famous member's mathematical works... Probably of greatest interest to potential purchasers of this volume is a CD inside the back cover that includes all four volumes... This is probably one of the last efforts to publish the collected works of an important mathematician in a beautiful hardcover edition. It is a fitting tribute to an extraordinary man and a great mathematician." Thomas L. Hankins, Isis
