16 Of lines there are two species: 1 the right or say strict line,
and the curve line.

18 Of the curve species line there are two immediate subspecies in number 18
subspecies are
1. recurant, 2, non-recurant

infinite of the first order: namely 1 the recurrent and 2dly the
non-recurrent. [Of the recurrent curve there are two species:
namely that which is most simple in its configuration, the circle, is say the cycle as above
and that which is
least simple in its
configuration the cycloid.
