Grenfell and A. S. Hunt. It is now located at the University of Pennsylvania. The diagram accompanies Proposition 5 of Book II of the Elements, and along . Do you have the time to devote to a serious study of plane geometry? In spite of it often being called "elementary", it's not very elementary. Something that we all know, like the Pythagorean theorem, is not easy to prove rigorously. Yes, we've al.
