"First published in 1908, this classic still gives undergraduate students their first dose of the differential and integral calculus, the properties of infinite series and other notions involving limit. Hardy's nineteenth-century sensibilities and approach based on the "Cambridge way" (which produced such fine mathematicians as Maxwell, Kelvin, Rayleigh and Stokes) may have been eroding as the result of new work on the Continent at the time."

"Although the sequence of the presentation of the fundamentals of mathematics has changed over the last century, the substance has not. There is no greater evidence of this fact than this classic work by Hardy, which could be used without alteration or additional explanation as a text in modern college mathematics courses... The mathematical influence of G. H. Hardy over mathematical education was and remains strong, as can be seen by reading this masterpiece."
