From the Preface by C.M. Jessop:

"The important character of the extensive investigations into the theory of line-geometry renders it desirable that a treatise should exist for the purpose of presenting these investigations in a form easily accessible to the English student of mathematics. With this end in view, the present work on the Line Complex has been written."



"The best introduction to the subject."

-- Virgil Snyder
