  • In this article we introduce old and new references for 'Grundlagen der Geometrie' written by Hilbert and summarize its contents. We then compare the 1902 English translation of the first (German) edition and the 1971 English translation of the 10th (German) edition focusing on the changes of the contents, terminologies, expressions, etc. We then finally discuss about the implications of these changes in translating mathematics classics into modern Korean and in creating mathematics books in modern Korean.
