What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Folding Plates, Illustrated, Original Binding, Scarce
An early edition of this scarce work on levelling by British civil engineer Frederick Walter Simms. Comprised of three parts focussing on the principles of levelling, the practice of levelling, and the computation of earth-work and road-making, Simms offers a practical guide to taking levels. Prior owner's name inscribed in ink, 'John Hart' in Leamington, dated 1839. Prior owner's name inscribed in ink to page 1. Name a little smudged, dated 1904.
In the publisher's original black cloth binding. Externally, generally sound. Lightly rubbed to the boards with a little wear to the extremities. There is some loss of cloth to the head and the tail of the spine, and wear to both the rear and front joints has led to rips in the cloth. Internally, firmly bound. Pages foxed throughout, but spots tend to be close to the fore edge.
