Original very dark green stippled cloth lettered in gilt with blind-stamped borders on boards. In today's jargon this book could be titled "Military Surveying for Dummies", since the Preface points out that "It is assumed that the reader is entirely unacquainted wth the subject...." Minor edge soil and foxing with only tiny corner abrasion. Previous owner's names and date (1878) and Royal Military College (Kingston) stamp. Many small drawings and three foldouts. No extraneous marks or damage. 192 pp.
