London:: Macmillan, 1882., 1882. 8vo. lxx, , 658,  pp. Half-title, fold-out frontis., 13 plates with 126 figs., index. Original dark green blind- and gilt-stamped cloth; joints glued down. Very good. First edition. "Clifford is perhaps most widely remembered as a popular writer on mathematics and physics, his work being colored by highly personal philosophical overtones. He played an important part, nevertheless, in introducing the ideas of G. F. B. Riemann and other writers on non-Euclidean geometry to English mathematicians. Clifford added a number of his own ideas to the subject, and these were highly regarded at the time, as were his papers on biquaternions, the classification of loci, and the topology of Riemann surfaces." – DSB III.
