The book, for which indeed, mostly, the earlier volumes were undertaken, still bears many marks of the difficulty of compressing the matter into brief compass. But the writer hopes that it may seem to the reader as remarkable as it does to him, that it should be possible to comprehend under one point of view, and that so simple, the introduction to nearly all the surfaces ordinarily studied in the geometry of three dimensions, as well as the usual line geometry. Chapters V, VI, VII seek to make clear that this is so. To these the earlier chapters are auxiliary. But Chapters II and IV have been introduced as much for their own interest as for their illustrative value; the results obtained in these two chapters are not required in the subsequent pages. It is hoped that the Table of Contents, and the Index, may make it easy to use the volume. It will of course be understood that the volume is throughout intended to be introductory and illustrative; hardly anywhere is it complete.
