Essen, Germany: THALES Verlag GmbH, 1985. First edition. Hardcover. New in publisher's shrink wrap. Quarto. App. 4,000pp. Original burgundy boards with gilt lettering on cover and spine. Frontispiece photograph. "Edmund Landau (1877-1938) occupied one of the first places of the contemporary mathematical world. His fields were number theory which fascinated him above all, analysis, and function theory. He also made important contributions to the algebra as well. From 1899 to 1940 not one volume of the renowned German "Jahrbuch über die Fortschritte der Mathematik" appeared without references to new important works of Landau. He left behind a life's work of unusual abundance and rare, pure quality.... The final volume contains biographical documents, photographs, facsimiles, a list of his lectures in Berlin and Göttingen, and and a listing of his doctoral students. Also, important reviews of his works in the "Jahrbuch über Fortschritte der Mathematik" and the "Zentralblatt der Mathematik" have been reprinted in this final volume." (The editors). Text in English, German, or French. Volume 1 with light bumps to corners. The other seven volumes in publisher's shrink wrap. (Inventory #: 40638)
