  • Euclid theorem given with substantive proofs.
  • Parallels and tangents are treated using Euclid methods.
  • Numericals arranged systematically from simple to more difficult.


    This book contains all elements (including the parallel postulate and the axioms) and the basic propositions of geometry. Details of Euclid’s definitions and their adaptations to explain various geometries have been attempted thoroughly.


    S Barnard (MA) was a British historian of Mathematics. He has authored many basic books of Geometry and Algebra. His book (along with J M Child) ‘A New Geometry for Schools’ is still a milestone work in the field of Elementary Mathematics.

    J M Child (MA) was a British mathematician and teacher of Geometry and Algebra. The ‘Early Mathematical manuscripts of Leibniz’, ‘Higher Algebra’, ‘The Geometrical Lectures of Isaac Barrow’ are among some world famous creations of the author.
