If you want a hardback reproduction of the original book - buy this one 15 Jan. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are countless different printings of Flatland available today. What I was looking for was a simple hardbound volume that was a facsimile reprint of the actual pages from an original. This is exactly that. There are no forewards or introductions. There are no annotations explaining this and that. Bibliolife appears to have taken the images from the openlibrary.org copy of an 1884 Seeley and Co. first edition, cleaned up the pages, and reprinted it in a hardbound volume. That's precisely what I wanted. Now if I could just find the same thing for the 1885 Roberts Brothers (American release) that would be awesome.

A must read for young people 22 Jun. 2008
By Leelee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Flatland is really about Philosophy and how man treats man. Our prejudices and bigotry. Basically only a few think out of the box and are open to new ideas. I read this when I was in 8th grade Algebra as an assignment. This and Animal Farm stick out as works of satire and great lessons. This should be mandatory reading for middle and high schoolers. Alas, it is long forgotten.

Enlightening 12 Mar. 2014

This is a great book for illuminating the mysteries of geometry and arithmetic for young learners, as well as those who only infer geometry from the world they see around them. It is also a great book about how perceptual prejudice thwarts our ability to accept what we can't always infer from our five senses.
