This delightful book, on practical geometry, garden design and decorative architecture, is packed with basic geometrical theory and construction methods, designs for paths and flower beds, and the most complicated designs for garden building decoration.  This is the second edition, printed in the same year as the Isaac Newton book, 1729.

Read the section on the definitions of point and line, and the dig at Euclid.
