Thanks. I haven't looked at the book you suggest yet. But here:

it is stared a more general result: that a 1-manifolds with boundary is
homeomorphic either to R or to the circle, or even to a closed or half-open R

Can anybody suggest where to find a complete demonstration of this more general
statement? Or maybe the demonstration reported by Prof. Lee can be easily

Thanks for any help
