Originally published in 1920, this volume contains book one of Euclid's Elements in Greek, together with an introduction and notes section written in English. It was created to provide young students with a contextual understanding of geometry and the development of geometrical principles, one which was increasingly neglected in the standard school textbooks of the time. By returning to the Elements in their original form it was hoped that students would gain a fundamental understanding of the ideas put forward in the text, one which would increase their knowledge and enthusiasm. It was also hoped that the dual process of learning Greek and geometry would be an effective way of impressing content on the mind of the learner. This volume will be of value to anyone with an interest in geometry and the development of pedagogy.
