This is a translation into English of the famous "Anschauliche Geometrie," by Hilbert and Cohn-Vossen. The basis of the book is a course of lectures which were given at Göttingen in 1920, and the purpose of the lectures was to give a presentation of geometry in its visual intuitive aspects. The book will appeal to ophthalmologists who have a basic interest in geometry. It has no practical applications for the clinician.
