Abstract

IN his first volume on the art of topography Colonel A Laussedat gives us an excellent sketch of the history and development of modern survey instruments, and an epitome of the opinions expressed by the best continental authorities on the subject of topography during the present century. The object of his comprehensive work is apparently to introduce to the scientific world the latest developments in the application of photography to the purposes of rapid delineation of topographical features, a comparatively new art which demands the attention of scientific surveyors in this country; but the present volume does not do more than touch this branch of his subject slightly.

Par le Colonel A. Laussedat. Vol. I. Pp. xi + 449. (Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1898.)
