3rd Printing (Princeton - 1957) No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . Check any modern author's bibliography, and you'll find Chevalley. That's because a classic is a classic. Of course there are certain usages, notations and cutting-edge developments and research which break new ground with intelligence and freshness. And keeping up with all that is obligatory, primarily because most of us are followers compelled to apply, apply, apply. But if you love and admire mathematics for mathematics sake, believing that only that love can produce original results, then buy this book. Abel said, 'Read the masters.' None of Abel's papers have lost their fecundity. Chevalley's Lie Groups still has that spell-binding charm, granular yet coherent texture and a driving commitment to the discovery of the field that will inspire you to dare to be original. The latest publisher offerings just don't do that for me. Mathematical writing must awe me to be worth the trouble. Chevalley's Lie Groups does that. Buy it, read it, do your own modernizing of whatever you believe is outdated, and grow. -- Bach
