About this Item

This TREATISE ON SURVEYING is bound with a volume on MATHEMATICAL TABLES published by Lucas in 1819. The full-leather binding retains the spine with false raised bands (gilt decorations only) and a red leather label with the title. But the front cover was detached at some point in the past; it looks like it happened 150 years ago. Some one preserved the original front cover and repaired the volume in a very unusual way: a soft, supple leather skin has been used to cover the boards and are bound with string to form a pocket-like covering to hold the front cover in place. The TREATISE ON SURVEYING has 8 pages of front matter and 326 numbered pages of text. The volume of MATHEMATICAL TABLES was published in Baltimore by Fielding Lucas and has 152 numbered pages. There is foxing throughout but the text remains surprisingly legible. Previous owner's have left their names on the fly leaves front and back, all dated 1830, 1831, 1832, or 1839. This is an early American version of this work in an unusual binding. Bookseller Inventory # 001662
