​We can discuss for some time about what should be present in the basics.
Since GIMP is the GNU Image Processing Program, image processing is
probably more basic than image drawing. Anyway, probably you did not search
for a long time, since on page 87, Figure 3.125 is named "Drawing a
straight line". A subsection of the same title begins on page 85.
