H S M Coxeter, P Du Val, H.Flather Kate and David Crennell produced a third edition for Tarquin some years ago. The plans and illustrations of all 59 of the stellations of the icosahedron were redrawn and there was a new introduction by Professor Coxeter. This edition has now been revised and updated and now includes colour plates for the first time. Many readers will wish to use the plates and descriptions included in The Fifty-nine Icosahedra to draw and make paper models of some or all of the stellations of the icosahedron and in so doing, gain a greater understanding of the stellation process. For a thorough understanding of the process of stellation and for splendid examples of beautiful polyhedra, this book will be a valuable addition to any mathematics library.
