I'm really tired of going through tons of wikipedia pages. Wikipedia is a good thing, but at one point one who wants to go deeper needs an ordered, comprehensive and formal treatment. Me at least.

Therefore, I would like some recommendations for detailed and comprehensive books on plane geometry.

You will find Coxeter's Introduction to Geometry covers plane geometry formally from a range of perspectives. It does more than two dimensions, but plane geometry is thoroughly covered throughout. It covers non-euclidean and inversive geometry, and is (in my view) rightly regarded as a classic.

Heath's translation and commentary on Euclid should not be forgotten.

If you can read Spanish there is a series of books by Mario O. Gonzalez. I think it is a very good work.

Benjamin Peirce, An elementary Treatise on Plane and Solid Geometry
