Euclid Geometry Unique

EUCLID — BYRNE, Oliver. “The first six books of The Elements of Euclid”.

The first six books of The Elements of Euclid in which coloured diagrams and symbols are used instead of letters for the greater ease of learners.
First edition, rare in the original cloth, of this celebrated book, “one of the oddest and most beautiful books of the whole century” (McLean). The use of colour is its most striking feature, with equal angles, lines, or polygonal regions assigned one of the three artistic primaries.
