Martin Gardner
Mathematical Games Collections

The great Martin Gardner's "Mathematical Games" columns in Scientific American were assembled, over the years, into fifteen volumes. I put together this simple listing to help me trace which book a remembered essay actually appears in. The Colossal Book of Mathematics: Classic Puzzles, Paradoxes, and Problems (2001) comprises 50 already collected columns (with updates), taken from every previous collection except The Numerology of Dr. Matrix. My thanks to Douglas Krajnovich for providing information on this book's contents. Columns reappearing in the The Colossal Book of Mathematics are marked with a paragraph sign ¶ in earlier listings below. – David Langford
