Schimmel, The Mystery of Numbers.

Schimmel, Annemarie. The Mystery of Numbers. New York, Oxford University Press, 1993. 14.5cm x 21.5cm X, 314 pages. Original Hardcover. With original dustjacket. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear.

In The Mystery of Numbers Annemarie Schimmel conducts an illuminating tour of the mysteries attributed to numbers over the centuries. She begins with an informative and often surprising introduction to the origins of the number system, but the heart of the book is an engrossing guide to the symbolism of numbers. From the philosophy of the Pythagoreans and Platonists, to the religious mysticism of the Cabala and the Islamic Brethren of Purity, to Kepler's belief that the laws of planetary motion should be mathematically elegant, to the unlucky thirteen.
