About this Item

FIRST EDITION. 8 vo. Rear plain gray wrapper. 14, (2,blank) pp. Folding engraved plate after the author's drawing. Title page dustsoiled; a good to very good copy. The fine copperplate shows the instrument in two forms, first with its micrometer adjusted telescope on a leveling base sighting on a vertical 360 circle with a central mirror; and second, as a hand-held instrument with the circle horizontal. Intended for geodetic use, the first arrangement allows determining a horizon when none is visible by measuring the height of the sun. Bookseller Inventory # 000529
