Here is a link to one of Georg Cantor's first papers on his theory of infinite sets. Interestingly it deals with the construction of transcendental numbers!
Cantor, Georg (1874), "Ueber eine Eigenschaft des Inbegriffes aller reellen algebraischen Zahlen", Journal für die Reine und Angewandte Mathematik, 77: 258–262

Here is the link to the free course on measure theory by my friend Marty Ross who I also like to thank for his help with finetuning this video:

(it's the last collection of videos at the bottom of the linked page).
Thank you also very much to Danil Dmitriev the official Mathologer translator for Russian for his subtitles.
Enjoy!
