Images of Some Famous Mathematical Works

This is a collection of images of title pages or pages from some famous mathematical works. Unlike modern title pages, many title pages of older works are often quite elaborate with wonderful "hidden" things to see. Pages from great works make great overhead slides in mathematics classes.

With this in mind, the images here were scanned at large sizes and resolutions so that they can be printed and you will get a fairly nice picture (and they made good overhead slides).

If you would like to make an overhead slide and your printer fails you, email me at
and I will be glad to send you a copy.
