Description:
Projective geometry started life over 500 years ago in the study of perspective drawing: the distance between two points on the artist’s canvas does not represent the true distance between the objects they represent so that Euclidean distance is not the right concept.

Book cover: An Elementary Course in Synthetic Projective GeometryAn Elementary Course in Synthetic Projective Geometry
by - Project Gutenberg
The book gives, in a simple way, the essentials of synthetic projective geometry. Enough examples have been provided to give the student a clear grasp of the theory. The student should have a thorough grounding in ordinary elementary geometry.
