**A Text-Book of Geometry**

by G. A. Wentworth

**Publisher**: Ginn & Company 1898**Number of pages**: 264

**Description**:

All unnecessary discussions and scholia have been avoided, and such methods have been adopted as experience and attentive observation, combined with repeated trials, have shown to be most readily comprehended. No attempt has been made to render more intelligible the simple notions of position, magnitude, and direction, which every child derives from observation, but it is helieved that these notions have been limited and denned with mathematical precision.
