[Herbert Busemann; Paul J Kelly] -- The present book differs widely in content, methods, and point of view from traditional presentations of the subject. Herein more space is devoted to the discussion of the basic concepts of distance. Richter-Gebert has has recently written an encyclopaedic book containing an amazing wealth of material on projective geometry, starting with nine (!) proofs of Pappos's theorem. The book examines some very unexpected topics like the use of tensor calculus in projective geometry, building on research by computer scientist Jim Blinn. The basic results and methods of projective and non-Euclidean geometry are indispensable for the geometer, and this book--different in content, methods, and point of view from traditional texts--attempts to emphasize that fact.5/5(1).   The basic results and methods of projective and non-Euclidean geometry are indispensable for the geometer, and this book--different in content, methods, and point of view from traditional texts--attempts to emphasize that fact. Results of special theorems are discussed in detail only when they are needed to develop a feeling for the subject or when they illustrate .

Knebelman. Geometers value basic results as much as they do the methods of projective and non-Euclidean geometry. This book emphasizes that fact, taking a non-traditional approach. Topics include the projective plane, polarities and conic sections, affine geometry, projective metrics, and non-Euclidean and spatial geometry.

Study by the source, look at Poincaréś book. However this stuff is not very well written and the foundations are kind of poor everywhere I've already looked. There is Tarski's book on axiomatic geometry and a paper by Makkai called "Universal projective geometry via topos theory".
