Differential Geometry Of Three Dimensions
by C.E. Weatherburn
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1955
Number of pages: 281
The more elementary parts of the subject are discussed in Chapters I-XI. The remainder of the book is devoted to differential invariants for a surface and their applications. By the use of vector methods the presentation of the subject is both simplified and condensed, and students are encouraged to reason geometrically rather than analytically.

A concise introduction to differential geometry. The ten chapters of Hicks' book contain most of the mathematics that has become the standard background for not only differential geometry, but also much of modern theoretical physics and cosmology.
by Ruslan Sharipov - Samizdat Press
Textbook for the first course of differential geometry. It covers the theory of curves in three-dimensional Euclidean space, the vectorial analysis both in Cartesian and curvilinear coordinates, and the theory of surfaces in the space E.

The historical driving force of the theory of manifolds was General Relativity, where the manifold is four-dimensional spacetime, wormholes and all. This text is occupied with the theory of differential forms and the exterior derivative.
