Are the scanned images of Cambridge Mathematical Tripos papers from late 19th century available anywhere on Internet?


Here is a collection, with solutions, from the period 1864-1878 (published by Joseph Wolstenholme). An earlier period, 1800-1820, was collected by I.M.F. Wright.

These are transcriptions of the problem sets, not copies of the original documents, some of which you can find here (1913-1917) (freely accessible) and here (1908-1912) (only accessible in the US because of copyright restrictions).

  • $\begingroup$ Doesn't copyright usually expire 70-100 years after the death of the original author (depending on country)? $\endgroup$ – Stefan Kohl Jun 25 '16 at 21:21
  • $\begingroup$ @StefanKohl --- true, I have added a link that explicitly says "not in copyright", and another that says "public domain in the US" $\endgroup$ – Carlo Beenakker Jun 25 '16 at 21:39
