Mondrian (Great Modern Masters Series)
by Piet Mondrian, Jose Maria Faerna (Editor), Alberto Curotto (Translator)
“Milner ( Vladimir Tatlin and the Russian Avant-Garde ) has produced a masterful account of Mondrian’s artistic and spiritual growth, a marvelously illustrated monograph that gives us Mondrian whole–as mystic, philosopher and individualist.” ~Copyright 1992 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
A Tour Of The Calculus
by David Berlinski
Commentary Magazine, April 1997, David Guaspari:
Calculus is a remarkable intellectual achievement–and a deeply consequential one, for it has made modern science, and especially modern physics, possible. Its essentials have been refined, over three centuries, into a structure of elegant economy. David Berlinski’s Tour walks the general reader through this modern edifice, displaying the logical frame that supports it and the grandeur of the completed whole.
