(Note that for Euclid, the concept of line includes curved lines.). Oliver Byrne (–) was a civil engineer and prolific author of works on subjects including mathematics, geometry, and engineering. His most well known book was this version of 'Euclid's Elements', published by Pickering inwhich used coloured graphic.

The Elements consists of thirteen books. Book 1 outlines the fundamental propositions of plane geometry, includ- ing the three cases in which triangles are congruent, various theorems involving parallel lines, the theorem regarding. If A is the side of a square and B its diagonal, then A and B are elements of Euclid book commensurable; the ratio A: B is not the ratio of numbers.
