An introduction to linear algebra from the pure math perspective. Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces. Paul R. Halmos The book ends with a few applications to analysis (Halmos’s true interest in the subject). Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces combines algebra and geometry to discuss the three-dimensional area where vectors can be plotted. The book broke ground.

It has a heavy emphasis on doing things in the most rigorous, “proper” way possible, written for the purest mathematicians at heart. It is a graduate text, and the author is very rigorous in the threatment of the subject.
I’m an undergraduate student with moderate interest in linear algebra, and have enjoyed reading other material on the subject in the past.
