In Part One of this comprehensive and frequently cited treatment, the authors develop Euclidean and Bolyai-Lobachevskian geometry on the basis of an axiom system due, in principle, to the work of David Hilbert. Part Two develops projective geometry in much the same way. Rigorous proofs appear throughout the text, and an Introduction provides background on topological space, analytic geometry, and other relevant topics.
