Elementary Functions and Applications
by Arthur Sullivan Gale, Charles William Watkeys
Publisher: H. Holt & Co. 1920
Number of pages: 459
This book presents a coherent year's work in mathematics for college freshmen, consisting of a study of the elementary functions; algebraic and transcendental, and their applications to problems arising in various fields of knowledge. The treatment is confined to functions of one variable, with incidental exceptions, and complex values of the independent and dependent variables are excluded. The subject matter includes the essentials of plane trigonometry and topics from advanced algebra, analytic geometry, and calculus.

A textbook for majors in mathematics and physical sciences, it concentrates on concepts and proofs. It is intended for students who have completed a standard introductory calculus sequence and who wish to know where all those formulas come from.
by Samuel Keller - D. Van Nostrand Company
Much that is ordinarily included in treatises on Analytics and Calculus, has been omitted from this book, not because it was regarded as worthless, but because it was considered quite unnecessary for the student of engineering.
by H. Jerome Keisler - Bodgen & Quigley
This is a calculus textbook at the college Freshman level based on infinitesimals. This approach puts the ideas of the founders of the calculus on a mathematically sound footing, and is easier for beginners than the more common approach via limits.
by Viktor Blasjo - Intellectual Mathematics
A concise textbook covering precalculus through vector calculus and differential equations using informal infinitesimal reasoning. Always gives the most illuminating proofs possible, while standard books obscure key ideas under pedantic formalism.
