“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. This book deals with practices in mathematics, such as finding and using square and cubic measures, as well as finding geometric angles of quadrilaterals.

 

This 1799 edition was edited by Robert Simson, a highly-regarded Scottish mathematician who was well-known for his studies on ancient geometers and Euclidian Porisms. Simson’s edition of Euclid’s ‘Elements’ was first published in 1756 but only contained the first six, eleventh, and twelfth books. It features in-text illustrations throughout along with 3 folding engraved plates.
