This book contains all 344 problems that were originally published in the 19th century journal, The Mathematical Visitor, classified by subject. Little-known to most mathematicians today, these problems represent lost treasure from mathematical antiquity. All solutions that were originally published in the journal are also included.

Stanley Rabinowitz received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the Polytechnic University (of New York) working under the direction of Erwin Lutwak in the areas of convexity, combinatorics, and number theory. Professionally, he is a software engineer and computer consultant, but math problem solving has been his hobby most of his life. He has had over 300 problems published and is a regular contributor, both as solver and proposer, to the problem columns of over a dozen journals from around the world. Dr. Rabinowitz has been associated with the MAA’s committee on the American Mathematical Competitions for over 15 years. He belongs to many professional societies, including AMS, MAA, SIAM, ACM and the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions. He was the editor for the elementary problem column in The Fibonacci Quarterly for many years.Review:
There are many graceful geometric miniatures, ingenious number theoretic excursions with sophisticated analyses, and old chestnuts weve all seen before. --Lawrence Zimmerman from the foreword
The volume is targeted as much to the mathematial historian as the the mathematical problemist. --Daniel H. Ullman from The American Mathematic al Monthly 105(1998)292-296
