Chapter Summary

This chapter presents sixteen figures of the fourth treatise of the book of Euclid on the Elements with diagram. It is said that a figure is drawn outside a figure if each one of the sides of the one drawn outside touches each one of the angles of the figure drawn inside. If a figure is in a figure, and the sides of the outside figure touch the angles of the inside figure, then the outside one is said to enclose the inside one. The chapter describes Besthorn's notes from B1 to B43, Heiberg's notes from H1 to H12 and Lo Bello's notes from L1 to L50.
