The Fractal Geometry of Nature

San Francisco: W. H. Freeman and Company, 1982.

First edition. A fantastic association copy signed in the year of publication by Benoit Mandelbot and inscribed to John Hubbard, "For John Hubbard / Cordially / Benoit Aug 31, 1982. / John: This book was [?] written long ago and delivered to the publisher on Aug 15, 81, as I told you when we talked last February [?]". A lovely inscription from the man hailed as the "father of fractals" to one of the mathematicians who shortly thereafter co-discovered the Mandebrot Set with Adrien Douady in 1985, naming it of course for Mandelbrot.

Bound in publisher's red cloth stamped in gilt. Very Good boards lightly bowed and lightly edge-worn, pages lightly toned. In an unclipped dust jacket with rubbing, toning, light edge wear and a crease to the front flap. Greatly expanded from Mandelbrot's 1977 book entitled Fractals. A great association copy between two mathematicians whose impact on 20th century mathematics was immense. Item #140940751
