First published in 1946, as the second edition of a 1932 original, this book was intended to provide students with a sound working knowledge of coordinate geometry. The text contains 'a full discussion of the subject up to conics referred to their axes, using both point equations and parametric methods wherever the latter are suitable'. Exercises and examples are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in coordinate geometry and the history of mathematics.
