While Serbia was part of the federation of South-Slav countries for majority of the twentieth century, the history of its mathematics, and in particular the history of descriptive geometry in the country is sufficiently independent from that of the twentieth century Yugoslavia to merit a separate historical analysis. We do this here, although we offer some remarks which include an overview of the ‘Yugoslav’ years as the twentieth century was in many ways different to the tradition we investigate. We conclude with remarks about the love affair with descriptive geometry, and its longevity in the Serbian educational system.
