Examines various attempts to prove Euclid's parallel postulate - by the Greeks, Arabs and Renaissance mathematicians. It considers forerunners and founders such as Saccheri, Lambert, Legendre, Gauss, Schweikart, Taurinus, J. Bolyai and Lobachewsky.

Renowned for its lucid yet meticulous exposition, this text follows the development of non-Euclidean geometry from a fundamental analysis of the concept of parallelism to such advanced topics as inversion and transformations.

The parallel postulate is the only distinctive characteristic of Euclid. To pronounce upon its validity and general philosophical significance without endeavoring to know what Non-Euclideans have done would be an inexcusable blunder ...
