جبر
[Cebir / Algebra]

Istanbul: Devlet Matbaası 1928.

Large 8°. 507 pp., contemporary black calf with gilt lettering and decoration, contemporary pink patterned endpapers, gilt edges (Very Good with hardly noticeable traces of wear on the covers).

 

This splendidly preserved pair of Ottoman algebra books in highly decorative contemporary bindings was published in the last year of the Ottoman script, before changing to Latin letters.

Not much is known about the author of the first book, Hüseyin Avni, who In 1889 wrote another book on mathematics Mebadi-I Ilm-I Cebr.

The second book Is a translation after the French author Auguste Clément Grévy (1865-1930), which was first published in the Ottoman in 1917 and twice in 1924. This 1928 edition, which was here issued as a sequel to Hüseyin Avni’s Algebra, appears to be unrecorded in the literature.

We could not find any institutional examples on Worldcat.
