The Great Pyramid.
THE SQUARING OE THE CIRCLE is a mathematical problem that has taxed the efforts of the most advanced scholars Europe has produced , and yet the Great Pyramid , in the most definite form , sokes this problem , and , in order to fully establish the matter beyond doubt , repeats the solution .
