"The trisoctahedron is a form composed of twenty-four isosceles triangular faces, each of which intersects two of the crystallographic axes at unity and the third axis at some multiple. There are various trisoctahedrons the faces of which have different inclinations." — Ford, 1912

An illustration showing how to construct two circles that tangent themselves and two given lines. "Draw the center line AB between the given lines; assume D to be the tangenting point of the circles; draw DC at right angles to AB. With C as center and CD as radius, draw the circle EDF. From E, draw Em at right angles to EF; and from F draw Fm at right angles to FE; then m and n are the centers for the required circles."

"If the cylinder A were to be developed a right section as at S—S would have to be taken, whose stretchout would be a straight line. If the cutting planes were taken at uniform distances apart, or at random, the elements would not be spaced uniformly on the stretchout but would be found as they project on the turned section of S—S." —French, 1911
