The Practical Surveyor - 1730
For historical surveyors, there are some who prefer Love's, Geodasia. Others lean toward the author of this piece, Samuel Wyld. This particular book is the second edition that contains six diagrams and numerous charts. His explanations and mathematical instructions will help anyone understand the 18th century process of mapping and plotting land. As he puts it; the “Art of Land-Measuring Made Easy.”
