Algebra, an Elementary Textbook for the Higher Classes of Secondary Schools and for Colleges: Volume I (Ams Chelsea Publishing) e-book

by G. Chrystal


Another book, along the same lines, from about 1900, is College Algebra by Henry Burchard Fine (1 vo. The explanations in both Chrystal and Fine are superb; oh that some authors of modern textbooks could explain as well. That's "just" algebra.

Once you appreciate the value of some of these 100+ year old mathematics textbooks, you can follow references and discover many more classics from other topics (. Pure Mathematics by Hardy for Calculus/Analysis to name just one).

Chrystal, G. (George), 1851-1911. 2. Includes bibliographical references and index. London : A. & C. Black.

This book and volume 2 are incredible. I've never been able to find a rigorous modern book on elementary algebra until I started looking up to one hundred years back in time, says something about todays standards. This book and the second volume have a profound table of contents, and most everything in the book is rigorously proved. I'm talking why subtracting a negative number gives a positive, a proof for why we can decompose rational fractions into partial fractions, a rigorous proof using Argand's diagram and complex numbers for the fundamental theorem of algebra. There is an absolutely enormous amount of problems, and we are talking some top tier algebra manipulation. None of my modern college algebra and precalculus books ever asked me to do the sort of problems in these babies, answer key for every problem in the back btw. This book is very challenging to read, seriously I took a year off school to hone my algebra skills and I barely made it through the first volume. This book takes grit and an enormous amount of patience to read, but I have a far better mathematical mind for it. I also recommend College Algebra by Henry Burchard Fine, and higher algebra by Hall and Knight. Both of which are about a hundred years old, but are also incredibly good algebra books. I threw away my precalculus and algebra books I bought from my university book store thats how angry I was with my watered down education. The english in this baby is older, but I think for the most part its fairly easy to read.

If, as G. Chrystal calls it, this was "elementary" in 1889, then something has gone wrong in the teaching of algebra since then...

These two volumes are simply two jewels -- look at the table of contents -- to be included in every mathematical collection.

Clear, precise, concise, even though the style is a bit oldish.
