Abstract

THE first edition of Prof. Loria's treatise on the history and bibliography of geometry was an expansion of a course of lectures delivered at Genoa in 1886. After an introductory chapter on geometry up to 1850, there followed eleven more dealing respectively with higher plane curves, surfaces, space curves, differential geometry, analysis situs, line geometry, correspondences and transformations, enumerative geometry, non-Euclidean geometry, hyperspace, and miscellaneous topics. This was translated into German and Polish. The second edition added references up to 1896. The fourth edition is doubled in size, the extra matter forming a second part, on a similar plan to the first, but dealing with contributions since 1896. It is remarkable that so much good work has been done in this period, which includes the War years. The book will be a most valuable aid to geometrical research.
