Ancient Fermat's proof?
Thanks, but nothing came up. I just copy and pasted the author and title info. Are sure there are no typos in that info?
EDi: Nvm, the author is listed by M.A. instead of Michael Angelo, that was the problem. Anyway, now to read it and and see if i can actually answer your question.

It's probably the proof of Fermat's little theorum or Fermat's 4n plus one theorum,not his last theorum.

i think he's talking about last theorem because he mentions the Wolfskehl prize
in the preface jp

For those who did not find it in the search (you just had to put the title in) I think this is the one that is meant:

Actually, they've got the first few pages in the archive and he is referring to Fermat's Last Theorum.
