**Non-Euclidean Geometry**

by Henry Manning

**Publisher**: Ginn and Company 1901**ISBN/ASIN**: 1112224785**Number of pages**: 93

**Description**:

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 Mathematics. The first three chapters assume a knowledge of only Plane and Solid Geometry and Trigonometry, and the entire book can be read by one who has taken the mathematical courses commonly given in our colleges.
