"The book under review is a reprint of Mumford's famous Harvard lecture notes, widely used by the few past generations of algebraic geometers. Springer-Verlag has done the mathematical community a service by making these notes available once again.... The informal style and frequency of examples make the book an excellent text." (Mathematical Reviews)
