I believe I've seen this book in a bookstore somewhere: it was a directory of integers, in ascending order, annotated with why each integer is interesting in certain aspects. e.g. the smallest (nonnegative) prime number that satisfies some condition, etc. Obviously it must be influenced by Ramanujan's taxicab number 1729. Could anyone identify this book?
It was not The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers nor Glynne-Jones' The Book of Numbers. It seemed more professional than these, and almost (if not entirely) consisted of integers.
