hello, I need a book where i can find the proof for the classification of 1-dimensional topological manifolds. (i already have Milnor's for the classification of 1-dimensional smooth manifolds) thank you

What you need is the existence of a unique smooth structure (if it exists) on a 1-dim topological manifold. – David Roberts Jan 9 '11 at 8:30

If I remember well, Introduction to topological manifolds (Lee) proves the classification theorem for 1-dim manifolds.
