The checklist is based on the East German Lipsius catalogue, which is quite rare. When I visited the library of the American Philatelic Association some years ago, they didn’t have a complete catalogue. Robert L. Weber, Physics on Stamps, A. S. , San Diego, 1980. This book concerns physics, not mathematics, but some of the stamps are of mathematical interest. The book makes no attempt at complete coverage. There is no checklist and the narrative is a sequence of topical essays illustrated by postage stamps, all in black and white despite the promise of colour on the blurb on the dust jacket.

9 Geometry Adrien Marie Legendre, Geometry One of the earliest rivals to Euclid (1794), this book in English translation was the basis for geometry instruction in United States in the 19th century wherever Euclid was not used. Indeed, there were several translations into English, including a famous one by Thomas Carlisle, usually credited to Sir David Brewster who oversaw the translation. The book is available only through antiquariat book sellers and in some of the older libraries. It is a must have for those interested in the history of geometry teaching in the United States.

This is a short biography of the greatest woman mathematician to date. L. S. Alexandrov. , Woodbridge (Suffolk), 1987. The author is an English man and not the African American poetess (Toni ). The Nasca Lines are lines laid out by prehistoric Indians on a high, dry plateau in Peru. The book has much information on these lines and Maria Reiche’s studies of them, as well as biographical information on Reiche.
