The Fourth Dimension Simply Explained by Henry P. Manning Twenty-two essays examine the fourth dimension: how it may be studied, its relationship to non-Euclidean geometry, analogues to three-dimensional space, its absurdities and curiosities, and its simpler properties. 1910 edition.
The Elements of Non-Euclidean Geometry by D. M.Y. Sommerville Renowned for its lucid yet meticulous exposition, this classic allows students to follow the development of non-Euclidean geometry from a fundamental analysis of the concept of parallelism to more advanced topics. 1914 edition. Includes 133 figures.
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.
This fine and versatile introduction to non-Euclidean geometry is appropriate for both high-school and college classes. Its first two-thirds requires just a familiarity with plane and solid geometry and trigonometry, and calculus is employed only in the final part. It begins with the theorems common to Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry, and then it addresses the specific differences that constitute elliptic and hyperbolic geometry. Major topics include hyperbolic geometry, single elliptic geometry, and analytic non-Euclidean geometry. 1901 edition.
Unabridged republication of Non-Euclidean Geometry, published by Ginn and Company, 1901.
