Perspective made easy: or, a new method for practical perspective. Shewing the use of a new-invented senographical protractor; so easy, that a Person, tho' an intire Stranger to Perspective, may, by Reading a few Lines, become Master of the Instrument, without the help of a Master. It's Useful in taking the Perspective Draughts of Towns, Countrys, Houses, and Gardens, or any Objects whatever; much easier than what has hitherto been Practised. With several useful Examples in Practical Perspective. together with the draughts of several remarkable places, in and about the cities of Bristol and Bath; in twenty-six copper plates. By William Halfpenny.
