 This book surveys results concerning bases and various approximation properties in the classical spaces of analytical functions. It contains extensive bibliographical comments. Readership Reviews "An almost complete exposition of the results concerning linear topological properties of Banach spaces of analytic functions (mainly of the disc algebras \(A\) and Hardy spaces \(H^p\)) obtained up to 1975 ... Written by one of the pioneers of the theory discussed, who has contributed very much to it. "The book is worth reading for anyone who enjoys the interplay between function theory and functional analysis."  S. V. Kisljakov, Mathematical Reviews Table of Contents  Preliminaries
