Boy, I hope that was a typo, or I'm *way* out of my depth... :-)

The copy of Trigonometry with Tables that I have (not the copy I studied from, but the copy my sister studied from three years later) has an initial copyright date of 1954 and a second copyright date of 1957. In the days when I studied from it, I wasn't in the business of criticizing texts, and really had nothing to compare it with. Later on, it seemed to me to be a competent job, but not outstanding. The book itself did not inspire me; the content did--and would have from any book. Perhaps most telling, I rarely refer to it for either problems or content, though I frequently have done so with the elementary calculus text I used for two years beginning only a year later than I studied from WK.
