In the *Little Mathematics Library* series we now come to *Remarkable Curves*, by a very remarkable author *A. I. Markushevich*. I am saying that he is remarkable as he has many good books under his sleeve, some of which we may see in the future.

As the title suggests the books takes the reader through various curves and how they can be materialised, just have a look at the table of contents below. The preface of the book says:

This book has been written mainly for high school students, but it will also be helpful to anyone studying on their own whose mathematical education is confined to high school mathematics. The book is based on a lecture I gave to Moscow schoolchildren of grades 7 and 8 (13 and 14 years old).

In preparing the lecture for publication I expanded the material,while at the same time trying not to make the treatment any less accessible. The most substantial addition is Section 13 on the ellipse, hyperbola and parabola viewed as conic sections.

For the sake of brevity most of the results on curves are given with-

out proof, although in many cases their proofs could have been given

in a form that readers could understand.The third Russian edition is enlarged by including the results on

Pascal’s and Brianchon’s theorems (on inscribed and circumscribed

hexagons), the spiral of Archimedes, the catenary, the logarithmic

spiral and the involute of a circle.

The book was translated from the Russian by Yu. A. Zdorovov and was first published by Mir in 1980.

The table of contents is as below:

If you could re upload the file and update the original link it will be very useful. Also not sure if the one which you had had this missing page problem or not, if it was full, then all the more reason to upload once again.
