Martin Gardner's book "Further Mathematical Diversions", chapter 18 is
entitled "Curves of Constant Width". It contains a swag of interesting
info on the Reuleaux Triangle (as he spells it).

(ISBN 0 04 793015 2)

The chapter essentially is one of his articles from Sci Am, from the '60s,
with answers and an addendum added, but the book doesn't indicate which issue.
