# Possibility & Euclid in Charles L. Dodgson, M.A. (Lewis Carroll)

### About: Euclid and His Modern Rivals by Lewis Carroll: Dover Publications Inc. 9780486229683 Paperback - Irish Booksellers

I could not find an original first edition on Abe Books. Mine is published in 1879 in London by Macmillan & CO. Approximately 300 pages, red cloth bound black end papers, slightly stained cover probably from use but still quite intact for an 139 year old book.

Lots of Logic & careful foundation for geometry.

*Seth says*👍

*Mark de LA says*The argument pic is an interesting way of presenting geometry & logic – were our teachers today only to obtain a bit of the humor & wit of yesteryears!

*Seth says*strange how the 2 published in 1974 are priced at $192

*Seth says*i’d like to compare the proof of Pythagorean theorem to the one taught in the schools today.
