This book is the famous essay by British mathematician G. H. Hardy. It concerns the aesthetics of mathematics with some personal content, and gives the layman an insight into the mind of a working mathematician. Indeed, this book is often considered one of the best insights into the mind of a working mathematician written for the layman.
About the Authors G. H. Hardy was an English mathematician, known for his achievements in number theory and mathematical analysis.

Men of Mathematics: Great Mathematicians from Zeno to Poincaré
This book provides a rich account of major mathematical milestones, from the geometry of the Greeks through Newton’s calculus, and on to the laws of probability, symbolic logic, and the fourth dimension.

The Story of Euclid (W. B. Frankland)
Euclid was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "Father of Geometry". His Elements is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook until the late 19th or early 20th century.
