The classic book about various numbers of dimensions is of course this one, originally published in 1884.

Edwin A. Abbott, Flatland

I first heard about tesseracts in the following book, but as I remember it, it didn't give me any clear idea what they were.

Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time

This next one, a story, did give me a clear idea, and was fun besides.

Robert A. Heinlein, “And He Built a Crooked House”

Then there's this book, which has some crazy stuff in it. If I hadn't happened to re-read it recently, I would have forgotten to mention the flat torus.

Greg Egan, Diaspora

The following stories are also interesting.

Greg Bear, Tangents
Rudy Rucker, Message Found in a Copy of Flatland

Finally, I'd like to mention one more book, because without its section titles I wouldn't have remembered about zenith and nadir.

Ursula K. LeGuin, The Compass Rose
