Excerpt from Elementary Plane Geometry: Inductive and Deductive

I do not suggest this book as a substitute for Euclid, but as an introduction to the study of the work of the great geometer, or of some work covering the same ground. Hence I have included the leading geometrical facts reached in Euclid's elements, and have introduced them in nearly Euclid's order. Teachers will find here about one year's work for a class of beginners. If the pupils pursue the sub. Ject of geometry no further, I humbly trust that the practical work they have done in connection with this course will have impressed the leading facts of elementary geometry indelibly on their minds; if on the other hand they take up the study of deductive geometry, I hope they will the better, from fol lowing this concrete course, appreciate the absolutely general and irrefragable character of Euclid's methods.
