A lovely work, beautifully enhanced with fine plates.
“Here I have endeavoured to treat the material in a way that gives the reader a geometrical spirit, even more than geometry itself. This spirit is none other than the accuracy that grasps its object, the connection that matches all the parts, the perception of the relationships.''
This book is useful to get into the spirit of these sciences and to prepare for the study of Physics and Physico-Mathematical Sciences,
