Martin Gardener was a great recreational mathematics expert and his column "Mathematical Games" is an all time hit. But is there any archive available online consisting of his articles (preferably in PDF format)? I searched online but I got only one or two articles in PDF format.

About 20 of Martin Gardner's books are available. In print, in iBooks, in Kindle, and probably other sources. Is there some reason you cannot pay for them?

All the "Mathematical Games" columns from Scientific American: you can get them on one CD ...about $51 from Amazon.com, cheaper from the MAA if you are a member.

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. He published volumes once a year with the 12 columns for that year. But if you want all the Sci. Am. columns, you can get them on CD. Answer edited to link to it. $\endgroup$ – Gerald Edgar May 5 '16 at 13:04
  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm thanks for the link but in India $51 is a lot of money. Anyways I have found the cd link in library genesis though. $\endgroup$ – Kushal Bhuyan May 5 '16 at 13:17
