A Text-Book of Geometry
by G. A. Wentworth
Publisher: Ginn & Company 1898
Number of pages: 264
All unnecessary discussions and scholia have been avoided, and such methods have been adopted as experience and attentive observation, combined with repeated trials, have shown to be most readily comprehended. No attempt has been made to render more intelligible the simple notions of position, magnitude, and direction, which every child derives from observation, but it is helieved that these notions have been limited and denned with mathematical precision.

This text is intended for a brief introductory course in plane geometry. It covers the topics from elementary geometry that are most likely to be required for more advanced mathematics courses. The only prerequisite is a semester of algebra.
by George Wentworth, David E. Smith - Ginn and Company
For a generation this was the leading textbook on the subject of plane geometry in America. Topics covered: rectilinear figures, the circle, proportion, similar polygons, areas of polygons, regular polygons and circles, etc.
This geometry text is written for the Pre-university students to serve as an introduction to Higher Elementary Geometry, either as a subsidiary or a main Subject. The aim is to give to the Students certain Elementary ideas about the subject.
