The Canterbury Puzzles
An extremely ingenious book which abounds in problems that will keep the reader busy for hours.'--Manchester Guardian One of England's greatest inventors of mathematical puzzles, Henry Dudeney (1847-1930) had a talent for finding solutions to problems that seemed unsolvable. This book includes 110 of his puzzles, not as individual problems but as incidents in connected stories. The first 31 are amusingly posed by pilgrims in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. Additional puzzles are presented using different characters in other venues. Many require only the ability to exercise logical or visual skills; others, like the Ribbon Problem or The Riddle of St. Edmonsbury, offer a stimulating challenge to the mathematically advanced. Solutions included.
