The volume includes a translation, notes on the translation, and a critical examination of the mathematical content of the three commentaries on Euclid's Elements of Geometry thus far treated in this series.Anthony Lo Bello received his Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from Yale University in 1975 under the supervision of S.
