I recently tried to ask about when the last book was published that contained logarithmic tables. From what I understand, the question was unclear because it is unclear what published means.

So, let me try with what I hope is a well-defined questions. What edition of CRC mathematical Tables was the last to contain logarithmic tables? The current edition (31st edition) does not contain the logarithmic tables.

Edit: For those who don't know, logarithmic tables are tables with values of logarithms. As an example see this webpage or this Wikipedia article.

  • $\begingroup$ It is 6.6 in the table of contents, though it is not clear whether this is a table or just formulas. $\endgroup$ – Alexandre Eremenko Apr 9 '15 at 20:08
  • $\begingroup$ 6.6 in the table of centents isn't the logarithmic tables, but just some list of functions. $\endgroup$ – John Doe Apr 10 '15 at 0:01

Bradis mathematical tables, 13th edition, published in 2010, contains logarithms:

I have the 28th Edition of CRC Standard Mathematical Tables (1988) and the log tables begin on page 161.

  • $\begingroup$ Can you provide, say, a hyperlink to an online source of the book (if possible) so it's easier to verify? It's okay if you can't (e.g. for copyright reasons - no online copies are allowed). $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Apr 12 '15 at 23:55
  • $\begingroup$ I only have a hard copy of the book. $\endgroup$ – SWilliams Apr 13 '15 at 2:35
