Smaller than half a sheet of 8½ x 11 paper. Fewer than 70 pages! And for real printed in the USSR (second printing, 1984).
Look what poor quality paper. I even inserted a blank sheet of paper under that page to get rid of some of the bleed through.
I do believe it’s the only book I have which is actually from the Soviet Union.
Wow. This is interesting. Amazon says it has one used paperback from $999.49.
That’s from BookFinder.com. The only one that’s a real match (1984 not ’86; Mir not Pubn) is at Abe. My copy is in very good condition. No rubbings or markings.
We all know about the used book market, but this is somewhat surprising. I guess maybe I should put it some place where it won’t get rained on. (jk)
What’s that? Game Theory? Oh. Right.
If you think that’s something, you should see the topology of the diagrams of Methods for Solving Some Infinite Games.
As you know, here on the Farm we like us some math– even got us some equations written on the kitchen walls. I made it to page 20 or so. I’m sure Mr. Big Food could plow through the thing in no time. He likes Game Theory.
Welp. That’s it. My desk is clear except for the books which call my desk home. And that
crappy old (1953) dictionary I like to keep handy.
