The Fifty-Nine Icosahedra was originally published in 1938 as No. 6 of "University of Toronto Studies (Mathematical Series)". Of the four authors, only Coxeter and myself are still alive, and we two are the authors of the whole text of the book, in which any signs of immaturity may perhaps be regarded leniently on noting that both of us were still in our twenties when it was written. N either of the others was a professional mathematician. Flather died about 1950, and Petrie, tragically, in a road accident in 1972. Petrie's part in the book consisted in the extremely difficult drawings which consti tute the left half of each of the plates (the much simpler ones on the right being mine). A brief biographical note on Petrie will be found on p. 32 of Coxeter's Regular Polytopes (3rd. ed. , Dover, New York, 1973); and it may be added that he was still a schoolboy when he discovered the regular skew polygons that are named after him, and are the occasion for the note on him in Coxeter's book. (Coxeter also was a schoolboy when some of the results for which he will be most remembered were obtained; he and Petrie were schoolboy friends and used to work together on polyhedron and polytope theory. ) Flather's part in the book consisted in making a very beautiful set of miniature models of all the fifty-nine figures. These are still in existence, and in excellent preservation.

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.
