Here are some other excellent mathematics books:

1. Mathematics: Its Content, Methods and Meaning

Containing the thoughts and direction of numerous mathematicians including Kolmogorov, this is a great survey of the field of mathematics. It touches upon Analysis, Analytic Geometry, Probability, Linear Algebra, Topology, and more. [1.]

2. Concrete Mathematics: A Foundation for Computer Science

Containing the thoughts and direction of mathematician and computer scientists such as Donald Knuth, this is a great reference for computer science related mathematical concepts focusing on continuous and discrete concepts. [2.]

Any HN recommendations for a good thorough book on Lambda Calculus? Preferably creative commons if such a text exists.

Have you seen this post on StackExchange/Mathematics? This may be a good start. I can't personally recommend any. Of course, good luck learning!
