You might consider the book "A Course of Pure Mathematics:" by G. H. 
Hardy. My copy was published in 1960 but the original pub date was 1908 
by The Cambridge University Press. I suspect that many used book dealers 
might have one the earlier editions (1908, 1914, 1921). Good luck with 
your venture.
