Excerpt from Elements of Plane and Solid Geometry, and of Plane and Spherical Trigonometry: To Which Is Added Mensuration, Surveying, and Navigation
The most perfect demonstration of a mathematical theorem is that which, while rigorously exact, is ex pressed in the fewest and simplest words. The Ele ments of Euclid, with some exceptions, are acknowl edged to be absolutely perfect in this respect. Tak ing these for a basis and model, I have reduced the essential features of Geometry to so small a compass that I have been enabled to bring that science, as well as its cognate and dependent ones, Trigonometry, Men suration, Surveying, and Navigation, within the com pass of a single volume.
In the chapters on Trigonometry, Mensuration, Sur veying, and Navigation, the student will find much that will, by exercising his analytical powers, fit him for the successful study of the higher branches of Mathematics.
