A Treatise on Mensuration, both in Theory and Practice
4to, period calf, rebacked preserving original spine strip, raised bands, recent morocco label in period style, illustrated, xxvi, 646, [2] pp. Some wear to covers, slight browning and aging, small sketch on front cover, some notes on subscriber page, signature on front pastedown and end paper; else very good. Perhaps one of the most significant features of this book is that this was Thomas Bewick?s first illustrating assignment. All the diagrams illustrating this work are his handy work. Bewick was an apprentice when he took on the job of illustrating this book, which would help him perfect his technique at wood engraving. This would be the first step in a long career as a book illustrator. The book is signed by C. Pope and Samuel B. Pope, and there is an inscription on the first page of subscribers, dated 1928, that states "This book is undoubtedly belonged to Christopher Pope of Bristol, who built the blast furnace in Tynycoitre Machen?"
