About the Author
Euclid is the most celebrated mathematician of all time. He lived in the third or fourth century B. C. E., after Plato but before Apollonius of Perga. His fame rests preeminently upon the Elements, which he wrote in thirteen books and which is said to have exercised an influence on the human mind greater than that of any other work except the Bible.

Thanks so much to the publisher for doing such a great job! You will not be disappointed if you are in a similar circumstance as I in purchasing this book; especially, the price is quite reasonable considering the prize that is this wonder of the ancient human mind.
Good luck to all who pursue the experience and for the sake of future mankind and civilization, share the wonder!
The 1908 Cambridge edition of Heath is available online from Google Books as a set of three free pdf files, so the full result of his impressive scholarship is readily available to anyone who enjoys delving deep into the details of that extensive variorum set.
As for this particular edition, it is a lovely example of a book. The binding is excellent and stands up quite well to the test of time. I've been using my copy extensively for a year and it still looks brand-new. In addition, the diagrams repeat if necessary on different pages. This is appreciated, especially in longer propositions. Definitions are numbered, which is helpful for classroom discussion, and there is a Greek (and English) glossary at the end which is extremely helpful if one needs to know a particular word for a mathematical term or for looking up propositions centered around a certain mathematical object. Overall, a great edition that makes Euclid's Elements even better.
