What Our Customers Say...

Description

Very Scarce

A new edition, revised. Undated. The first edition of this work was published in 1784, with this copy being a later revised edition, hence the circa date. This particular work that offers a series of charts that can be used to calculate the 'ullage' contents of any cask, that being the remaining vacant space. This space can be important when transporting certain goods to account for expansion. This very scarce work offers a useful exercise that can be used to in relation to any cask, however large. The publishers information to the title page appears to have been printed back-to-front with a corrected slip pasted on top.
