I lost my book on Quantum mechanics! It was published in the late 80s or early 90s in England. Title: Quantum Mechanics. The book used algebra with more advanced math in the appendices. If you know the author , please reply. Thanks!

The only one I can think of is Dirac’s book but it’s more intense mathematically.

In college, we used Schiffs Quantum Mechanics 1970 timeframe and the profs used to praise Rojanskys book on QM circa 1950, 1960.

I found a Teach Yourself book on Quantum Mechanics that looks simpler mathematically.

And then there’s Susskinds book on Quantum Mechanics The Theoretical Minimum.

I also found an online book by Binney here:

There are so many! What color was the cover? Did you recall the cover design (I am not kidding, it would be helpful). It was a hardcover, probably?
Do you mean that it was first published in the 80s or 90s? Or could it have just been a reedition?

Off the top of my head, I can think of Dirac (an older and very slim book), Messiah, Schiffs, Landau, Bethe, (these are rather old), Sakurai, Cohen and Tannoudji et al, Shankar, Goswami, Zettili, Griffiths, Ballentine, Greiner etc. There are tons. Did you try to go on Amazon and just ask for books on quantum mechanics and look at the covers to see if you recognize your book?
