This is a first rate hardcover reprinting, which was printed in England for Feshbach Publishing by Cambridge University Press, using their highest standards. These books are truly a pleasure to use.

Each volume is about 1000 pages long.

From a 2011 Scientific Programming review:

"... should still be atop the ... bookshelves of every mathematical physicist .... magnificent treatise...enough mathematical material to enable the reader to grasp the connections between the disparate theoretical methods of physics. No other book can claim that..."

Invaluable Resource

These books provide a much deeper introduction to theoretical physics than the standard textbooks in use today. If you are a serious student or researcher in physics you will find these books to be invaluable resources. Many famous physicists learned much of their mathematics from "Morse and Feshbach" and have referred to it throughout their careers.
