A survey of modern algebra by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
164 editions published between 1941 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This classic text introduces abstract algebra using familiar and concrete examples that illustrate each concept as it is presented. It covers such topics as the role of careful proof in algebra; linear algebra as grounded in geometry; groups as expressions of symmetry; subgroups and subsystems leading to lattice theory; and much more"Cover

Lattice theory by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
124 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its original publication in 1940, this book has been revised and modernized several times, most notably in 1948 (second edition) and in 1967 (third edition). The material is organized into four main parts: general notions and concepts of lattice theory (Chapters IV), universal algebra (Chapters VIVII), applications of lattice theory to various areas of mathematics (Chapters VIIIXII), and mathematical structures that can be developed using lattices (Chapters XIIIXVII). At the end of the book there is a list of 166 unsolved problems in lattice theory, many of which still remain open. I
