I’ve been after a 2nd edition copy of ‘The Speed System of Basic Mathematics’ Piper MP86 1968 for a while but every time it appeared infrequently on eBay someone always outbid me. I’ve now managed to get it from a seller on Amazon but I have to say it must be one of the most boring covers around and on looking at other Pipers from that time there are several more just as dull. My selection appears below and if there are any you want to nominate we’ll have a poll for the worst!. The first edition of the Trachtenberg was not amongst my favourite covers but it was more adventurous than these.
In the last blog I queried if the monogram that looked as if it was made up of a G, d and an A was Gino d’Achille? Having looked at his website more closely I found an example picture which clearly shows it is his although he often just put GD.
