Review:

B. Artmann

Euclid - The Creation of Mathematics

"The author invites the ‘lover of mathematics’ to have a peek, via a gentle introduction and presentation of Euclid’s Elements, with detours to previous Greek geometers, whose work has been incorporated in the Elements. The contents of the Elements are presented book by book . . . with full statements of the definitions, axioms, propositions, and proofs involved. There are . . . notes to subsequent development of Euclidean themes . . . justifications of steps of proof and of the sequence in which results appear . . . An original and pleasing feature of the book consists in the references to Greek architecture, which emphasize the pervasiveness of the concern for proportion in Greek culture, as well as the references to archaeological finds of dodecahedra- and icosahedra-shaped objects."―AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL SOCIETY
