Six Books of Euclid

 

For anyone interested in geometry, this book is a must have. Not familiar with the name Euclid nor the images on the cover of the book? Here’s some context: Oliver Byrne (c. 1810–c. 1880) translated the theorems of Greek mathematician Euclid (aka the “Father of Geometry”) into colorful diagrams and figures in order to make learning easier. Considering the distinct Mondrian feel you get while examining the pages, it’s remarkable that Byrne created the original edition of Euclid in 1847.
