Review:  The set of b for which there exists a linear space with v points and b lines is studied very sharply, particularly for large v and for v of the form n2+n+1. Interesting is an extremal case: if v = n2+n+1, b = n22n+1 the space is obtained from a projective plane replacing one of its lines with a near pencil or a projective plane. Conjectures and problems are given too.
