PREFACE
Non-Euclidean Geometry is now recognized as an important branch of Mathe-matics. Those who teach Geometry should have some knowledge of this subject,and all who are interested in Mathematics will find much to stimulate them andmuch for them to enjoy in the novel results and views that it presents.This book is an attempt to give a simple and direct account of the Non-Euclidean Geometry, and one which presupposes but little knowledge of Math-ematics. The first three chapters assume a knowledge of only Plane and SolidGeometry and Trigonometry, and the entire book can be read by one who hastaken the mathematical courses commonly given in our colleges.No special claim to originality can be made for what is published here. Thepropositions have long been established, and in various ways. Some of the proofsmay be new, but others, as already given by writers on this subject, could not beimproved. These have come to me chiefly through the translations of ProfessorGeorge Bruce Halsted of the University of Texas.I am particularly indebted to my friend, Arnold B. Chace, Sc.D., of ValleyFalls, R. I., with whom I have studied and discussed the subject.HENRY P. MANNING.
