Euclid's Elements is the most famous mathematical work of classical antiquity, and has had a profound influence on the development of modern Mathematics and Physics. This volume contains the definitive Ancient Greek text of J.L. Heiberg (1883), together with an English translation. For ease of use, the Greek text and the corresponding English text are on facing pages. Moreover, the figures are drawn with both Greek and English symbols. Finally, a helpful Greek/English lexicon explaining Ancient Greek mathematical jargon is appended. Volume I contains Books 1-4, and covers the fundamentals of straight-line and circular geometry, the fundamentals of geometric algebra, and rectilinear figures inscribed in and circumscribed about circles. THIS EDITION IS OBSOLETE. SEE PROJECTS 1400539 OR 1354389 FOR THE LATEST EDITION.
