Last amended 4 agosto 1996. Accents and umlauts may be missing. GENERAL INTERESTS. History of Mathematics, Computing and Science. Recreational mathematics, puzzles, games, etc. Photo Quiz puzzles or party games. Mathematics: combinatorics, number theory. Word games and puzzles, riddles. I am always interested in books on the above topics for my own list of books for trade or sale as well as for particular colleagues. Humour, especially cartoons and limericks. English language, word origins, British-American, scientific words. London, particularly science and technology in London. Odd facts - e.g. Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Genealogy of the Zang(e)meister/Singmaster family in Germany/USA. Art, archaeology, mathematics and art, geometric patterns and ornaments, Iznik tiles and pottery. Photography, e.g. some of the Sierra Club/Ballantine paperbacks are wanted. Stereo cards. Underwater photography and archaeology, fish, shells. Works by R. Austin Freeman and some similar detective fiction. Anything about tassel-making, particularly concerning the name 'posamentier'. o/o indicates 'on order'. HB indicates that only the hardback version is wanted. For older works, the data on publisher, place and date usually refer to only one edition and there may well be other editions or reprints which I would be interested in. I am usually looking for cheap reading copies. I have recently found that many items are listed in Books In Print, in the US and/or the UK. I have added further details including ISBNs to these and I can obtain those that are in print relatively easily - but some are much more expensive as new reprints than I would expect a second-hand copy to cost and some are apparently out of print even though they are still listed. Some items have cryptic notes at the end in [ ] indicating my source of information. GENERAL. The Blue Plaque Guide. Journeyman Press. œ6.50. The Pattern of English Building.
