Plane & Geodetic Surveying

£19.99

Product description

A book for engineers, originally published in 1923.
Chapter headings include: Instruments, Linear Measurements, Chain Surveying, Theodolite Traversing, Contours, Tacheometrical Surveying and Hydrographical Surveying.

'This textbook is designed to form a complete treatise on plane surveying with such parts of geodetic work as are of interest to the civil engineer... Although this work is intended to serve as a reference book for practising engineers and surveyors, the chief aim has been to cover ground suitable for a degree course, and while it is hoped that the book will prove of value to those pursuing a college course, the needs of the self-taught student have been specially kept in view.'
The engineering methods within may be somewhat out of date, the book may be of historical interest only, however its clear charts, b/w line drawings and diagrams, also the flowing, elegant formulae throughout the clear text remain fascinating.
Blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Light wear marks on cover; corners and spine ends bumped, some surface scuffing; foxing to end papers, text block edges and page edges lightly toned.
Previous owner's name inscribed in ink on front end paper: A D Margrett, who went on to publish "Hydrographic surveying for development and conservancy" in 1955.
