Points in Space and General Equations of the Second Degree Between Three Variables (Nelson, Alexander Lockhart)

Description

Nelson's keystone publication in mathematics, Points in Space and General Equations of the Second Degree Between Three Variables, was published in 1892 by the Houston family, who were instrumental in founding the city of Houston, Texas. The Houston family crest is pressed into the front page. The pages of this book are cleanly and clearly laid out, with complex geometry, both proofs and diagrams. This publication is further evidence of Nelson’s strong intellect.
