Miller discusses the history of diagrams in Euclidean Geometry, develops a formal system for working with them, and concludes that they can be used rigorously. Miller also introduces a diagrammatic computer proof system, based on this formal system.

The author expresses his expectation, that these novel and interesting theorems some British, but the greater part derived from French and German sources will widen the outlook of our mathematical instructors and lend new vigour to their teaching.

This book is aimed to be an introduction to some of our favorite parts of the subject, covering some familiar and popular topics as well as some old, forgotten, sometimes obscure, and at times very recent and exciting results.

Axioms were uncovered in Euclid's geometry. These discoveries were organized into a more rigorous axiomatic system by David Hilbert in his Grundlagen der Geometrie (1899) which contained his definitive set of axioms for Euclidean geometry.
