    A student of mine got a hold of a copy and lent it to me. A fascinating read. What really struck me was that in the 1880's there seemed to be very few teachers, he had to figure out a lot of stuff on his own, whereas if he had had a good teacher it would have saved him a lot of time. He didn't have the advantage of his own books!
