In this post, we will see the book A Course In Descriptive Geometry by V. O. Gordon; M. A. Sementsov-Ogievskii.
About the book
This celebrated textbook was written as a course in descriptive geometry for students of machine building and mechanical engineering institutes. It contains sections on systems of orthogonal projections and axonometric projections. It also includes a systematic account of topics like formation of projections, point and straight line, planes and their mutual positions, formation of a drawing
by varying projection planes and rotation, construction of polygons and their intersection by a plane and
a straight line, intersection of one polygonal surface by another, curved lines and curved surfaces,
intersection of curved surfaces by a plane and a straight line, intersection of one curved surface
by another, involution of curved surfaces. Each chapter contains a large number of test questions to make the subject matter more readily comprehensible. The book also contains a short account of the development of descriptive geometry since XIX century as well as information about some scientists who have made significant contributions in the field of descriptive geometry both as a science and as a subject of study.
