Alexis Clairaut was an 18th-century French mathematician whose book Elements of Geometry’ was a landmark work at its time. First written in 1741, this book was written to give math students the tools to discover complex problems for themselves – one of the first geometry text to use a hands-on approach, rather than simply repeated problem solving. It is worth noting that while this book was rooted in geometry, because of Clairaut’s interest in Newtonian astronomy, astronomical and physics concepts are related back to geometry throughout this work.

 

This 1775 edition of Clairaut’s ‘Geometry’ includes 14 impressive folding engravings at the end illustrating hundreds of geometric figures, shapes, and three-dimensional objects.
