The annotated Alice: Alice's adventures in Wonderland & Through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll ( Book )
136 editions published between 1960 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 3,490 libraries worldwide
This is the first and only edition of Lewis Carroll's two masterpieces, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, that contains the full text, together with all of the original Tenniel illustrations in their correct places, and that adds to this a full annotation running concurrently with the text for the easiest possible reference. Here, the result of many years of research by an expert, is a running commentary on all the jokes, games, puzzles, tricks, parodies, obscure references and almost endless curiousities with which Carroll filled his writings. With this information a modern reader can appreciate this great and subtle book in a way that would be impossible otherwise.

55 editions published between 1958 and 2003 in 7 languages and held by 1,699 libraries worldwide
A collection of brain teasers and mathematical puzzles from the pages of Scientific American. Annotation. These clearly and cleverly presented mathematical recreations of paradoxes and paperfolding, Moebius variations and mnemonics both ancient and modern delight and perplex while demonstrating principles of logic, probability, geometry, and other mathematical fields. Martin Gardner has turned a trick as neat as any in the book itself. He has selected a group of diversions which are not only entertaining but mathematically meaningful as well. The result is a work which is rewarding on almost every level of mathematical achievement.
