The country survey-book: or, land meter's vade-mecum. Wherein the principles and practical rules for surveying of land, are so plainly (tho' briefly) deliver'd, that any one of ordinary Parts, (understanding how to add, substract, multiply, and divide) may, by the Help of this small Treatise alone, and a few cheap Instruments easy to be procur'd, measure a Parcel of Land, and with Judgment and Expedition plot it, and give up the Content thereof. With an appendix, containing twelve problems, touching Compound-Interest and Annuities; and a Method to contract the Work of Fellowship and Alligation alternate, very considerable in many Cases. Illustrated with several copper plates. By Adam Martindale, a Friend to Mathematical Learning.
- Martindale, Adam, 1623-1686.
