    Book with proof of Zsigmondy's theorem?

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a book in English that provided a proof of Zsigmondy's theorem.

    Thanks.

    Here is a book that at least mentions the theorem in the index--perhaps you could check it out. There also seems to be a monograph on the subject.

    The book mentioned just states the theorem, no proof.

    I found this and thought of you. I didn't look through the whole thing, but it looks pretty good. I hope it can be of some use.
