Can any1 give me links for some projective geometry books and articles?
*Projective geometry by HSM Coxeter is specially preferred

I'm going to mention and give some links to Projective Geometry books and pdf's. (Since, the idea of pole-polars are used the most in olympiad problems, I'll give some links seperately about that as well.)
I hope others will continue the thread.

These 2 books have a brief introduction to pole-polars. (The treatment in Court's book is more thorough.)

The subforum Divisional math olympiad is only for illustrating olympiad style problems. Please don't ask there for book suggestion in future. I moved the topic to Higher Secondary level.

I know there are many varieties of Geometry Books available in the market for one to learn Geometry. But the most popular one or the one that has the largest number of users in my country is Tutor in a Book’s Geometry by a noted Jo Greig. We all believe it is the widest used textbook in the world for this purpose.

Tutor in a Book’s Geometry is one of the best tutoring books that walks through each problems step by step and provides with many opportunities to practice each skill. It is well-organized by topic, and beyond thorough in its discussion of each item. the margins are filled with hand-written notes and diagrams showing key ideas, shortcuts, common mistakes to avoid, and explanations. The examples are helpful, clear, concise. It provided a clear explanation of the many theorems and definitions that go along with geometry. This book is a must have for those who either need to learn Geometry or refresh their geometrical skills in a quick way.
