This is an auction for A CONCISE HISTORY OF MATHEMATICS, by Dirk J. Struik.

Amazon.com review:

"If you are looking for a book that clearly describes the evolution of mathematics, you don't need to try more, this book is for you. Struik's book, "A Concise History of Mathematics", is a well documented book with the main contributions, dates, and names of the people involved in the development of mathematics from their ancients origins until the first half of the 20th century. Struik's style of writing is clear and, how the title of the book says, concise, highlighting the relevant discoveries made in the field and relating them in order to give a better understanding of the subject. Reading is easy for all people because Struik avoids to use formulas where it is not necessary, focusing more in the works of the great mathematicians and describing them of a comprehensible way. Another excellent feature of the book is the great bibliography that contains, with a many references to other books not only in English, but in other languages also. This is a classical book, written by a world wide recognized author, of a clear and concise manner. All people interested in this area of the mathematics must have this book in their shelf."
