Example text

For the most part, book 6 follows the organizational structure of book 5, the lion’s share of it being devoted to a mathematical analysis of the seven mirrors in order from plane (chapter 3), through convex spherical, cylindrical, and conical (chapters 4-6), to concave spherical, cylindrical, and conical (chapters 7-9). Since that structure is explicit in book 6, I had no need to impose it, as I did for book 5. As to the remaining levels of organization, which I did have to impose, I followed the pattern established earlier for book 5, breaking the text into propositional elements (38 in all), which on occasion I further subdivided into cases.
