Gallai's theorem
Posted:

Hi,
Gallai's theorem states that :
"Let the vertices of R^n be finitely colored. For all finite set V in R^n there exists a monochromatic W homothetic to V."
I've seen the proof given in : R.Graham, B.L.Rothschild, J.H.Spencer, Ramsey Theory, Wiley.
Does anybody know other references containing a proof of Gallai's theorem? Does anybody have the reference of the original paper of Gallai?
Thanks in advance.
Pierre.
