I can't study algebraic geometry yet, so before i learn that, yet i need a comprehensive treatment to the geometric theory of plane curves. i notice that the books refer to this subject either out of print thick one or not comprehensive thin books. I also notice that for the old ones, geometric construction is often missing. Is there any introductory(beginning undergradutes) to intermediate(advanced undergraduates or beginning graduates) comprehensive thick books about theory of plane curves that are free online(i prefer this, but if it is a old one, i prefer that it have more graph so it gives me much more intuition) and the good ones that are not out of print(please give the content of the books if preview is unavailable), also a curious question is, why colleges doesn't offer a plane curve course that stand alone by itself?
