Although a thorough knowledge of the Elements of Euclid is indispensable previously to any further progress in the Mathematics; yet such is the repulsive form in which they have hitherto been presented to the student, that he seldom fails to experience considerable embarrassment in the onset, and frequently abandons the pursuit after reading the first four or five propositions.

Overview
Excerpt from Elements of Euclid: Containing the First Six, and the Eleventh and Twelfth Books, Chiefly From the Text of Dr. Simson; Adapted to Elementary Instruction by the Introduction of Symbols
Although a thorough knowledge of the Elements of Euclid is indispensable previously to any further progress in the Mathematics; yet such is the repulsive form in which they have hitherto been presented to the student, that he seldom fails to experience considerable embarrassment in the onset, and frequently abandons the pursuit after reading the first four or five propositions.
The absence of methodical arrangement in any kind of argument, seldom fails to obscure the whole. Each syllogism should be clearly detached from the other, so that its force be fully evinced, before another, as consequent upon it, be brought into notice. In the present editions of Euclid no stronger mark of distinction exists between the steps of the demonstration than a colon or period. The student is therefore extremely liable to blend them together. And the nice discrimination necessary to separate them, requires more labour and greater abstraction of thought than the generality of beginners are either capable of, or willing to submit to.
