    just spectacular-
    The analytic involved is mind bending


  3. Wish that better instruction on the constructions had been included in the text. To me that omission makes the book a bit more of a bookshelf book, and a bit less of a workshop book.

    Thanks to you at LAP and of course to Jim Tolpin for sharing this. A great work, bringing in a new consideration for me: the possibility to make all those constructions from scratch without using a square. some constructions i learne in a different way, nevertheless its very interesting and helpful. Will put some things into my daily work and order my copy at dictum in no time.
    greetings, Alexander
