Abstract

(I) THE fact that a third edition has been issued of Prof. Filon's book on projective geometry is a sufficient indication of its usefulness and merit. There is little to record as regards changes or innovations. One would only like to say that while from chapter 2 onwards the book reads fairly plainly, the first chapter is not at all easy reading. Why need the student be frightened off by such an introduction to a subject full of fascination? If a further edition is called for, perhaps the author could see his way to simplify this chapter and improving the illustrations so as to make it more palatable.
