A mathematician's apology
by
G. H Hardy(
Book
)
120 editions published between 1940 and 2012 in 12 languages and held by 3,611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One of the main themes of the book is the beauty that mathematics possess, which Hardy compares to painting and poetry. For Hardy, the most beautiful mathematics was that which had no applications in the outside world, by which he meant pure mathematics, and, in particular, his own special field of number theory. He justifies the pursuit of pure mathematics with the argument that its very "uselessness" meant that it could not be misused to cause harm. On the other hand, Hardy denigrates applied mathematics, describing it as "ugly", "trivial" and "dull."

A course of pure mathematics
by
G. H Hardy(
Book
)
150 editions published between 1903 and 2012 in English and French and held by 2,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since its publication in 1908, G.H. Hardy's Pure Mathematics has been a classic work to which successive generations of budding mathematicians have turned at the beginning of their undergraduate courses. In its pages, Hardy combines the enthusiasm of the missionary with the rigour of the purist in his exposition of the fundamental ideas of the differential and integral calculus, of the properties of infinite series and of other topics involving the notion of limit."Jacket
