“The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God”

– Euclid

 

A rare and important study on the theories of Euclid. These theories include ancient Greek ideas on mathematics, particularly geometry. ‘Elements’ deals with practices in mathematics, such as finding and using square and cubic measures, as well as finding geometric angles of quadrilaterals. According to many mathematicians, this work is “the most influential book of mathematics of all time.”

 

This 1589 edition is a commentary on Euclid’s ‘Elements’ by Christopher Clavius. First published in 1574, this book displays the influence of Euclid on 16th-century mathematicians and is filled with sketches of geometric problems and solutions.
