TEACHING VARIOUS WAYS OF TAKING THE SURVEY
AND FIND THE ARLA.

“ A System of Geometry and Trigonometry : together with a “ Treatise on Surveying ; teaching various ways of taking the Sur
vey of a Field ; also to protract the same and find the Area. Like« wise Rectangular Surveying ; or, an accurate method of calcula“ ting the Area of any field arithmetically, without the necessity of “ Plotting it.
To the whole are added several mathematical Tables, “ necessary for solving questions in Trigonometry and Surveying ; « with a particular explanation of those Tables and the manner of . “ using them. Compiled from various Authors, by Abel FLINT, " A. M."
In conformity to the Act of the Congress of the United States entitled, “ An Act for the Encouragement of Learning by securing the « Copies of Maps, Charts and Books to the Authors and Proprietars w of such Copies during the times therein mentioned.”

HAVING perused, with some attention, the
following Treatise on Surveying, in Manuscript, it appears to me to be estimable for its simplicity and perspicuity ; and, by excluding all matter but remotely connected with the main subject, and reducing the Tables of Logarithms, of Logairthmic Sines, Tangents and Secants, and of Difference of Latitude and Departure, without imparing their use, in their application to most cases which occur in common Surveying, and supplying any possible defect by a Table of Natural Sines, to comprise, in the limits of a pocket Volume, whatever is most essential and most useful in the Art, including the important modern improvement of RectanGULAR SURVEYING; and on the whole, particularly from the size of the volume, to be well adapted to general use.
