The Gentle Art of Mathematics by Dan Pedoe This lighthearted work uses a variety of practical applications and puzzles to take a look at today's mathematical trends. In nine chapters, Professor Pedoe covers mathematical games, chance and choice, automatic thinking, and more.
Taxicab Geometry: An Adventure in Non-Euclidean Geometry by Eugene F. Krause Fascinating, accessible introduction to unusual mathematical system in which distance is not measured by straight lines. Illustrated topics include applications to urban geography and comparisons to Euclidean geometry. Selected answers to problems.
Excursions in Geometry by C. Stanley Ogilvy A straightedge, compass, and a little thought are all that's needed to discover the intellectual excitement of geometry. Harmonic division and Apollonian circles, inversive geometry, hexlet, Golden Section, more. 132 illustrations.
Non-Euclidean Geometry by Roberto Bonola Examines various attempts to prove Euclid's parallel postulate — by the Greeks, Arabs, and Renaissance mathematicians. It considers forerunners and founders such as Saccheri, Lambert, Legendre, W. Bolyai, Gauss, others. Includes 181 diagrams.
An Introduction to the Theory of Linear Spaces by Georgi E. Shilov, Richard A.

Kelly This text examines the 3 classical geometries and their relationship to general geometric structures, with particular focus on affine geometry, projective metrics, non-Euclidean geometry, and spatial geometry. 1953 edition.
"A good textbook." ― Mathematical Gazette. This introduction to Euclidean geometry emphasizes both the theory and the practical application of isometries and similarities to geometric transformations. Each chapter begins with an optional commentary on the history of geometry. Contents include modern elementary geometry, isometries and similarities in the plane, vectors and complex numbers in geometry, inversion, and isometries in space. Numerous exercises appear throughout the text, many of which have corresponding answers and hints at the back of the book. Prerequisites for this text, which is suitable for undergraduate courses, include high school algebra, geometry, and elementary trigonometry. 1972 edition.
