TRA VERSE TABLES: Computed to 4 Places Decimals for every Minute of Angle up to
100 of Distance.
By R. LLOYD GURDEN, Authorised Surveyor for the Governments of New South Wales and, Victoria "Mr. GURDEN is to be thanked for the extraordinary labour which he has bestowed on facilitating the work of the Surveyor.
An almost unexampled instance of professional and literary industry."- Athí næum.
“Those who have experience in exact SURVEY-WORK will best know how to appreciate the enormous amount of labour represented by this valuable book. The computations enable the user to ascertain the sines and cosines for a distance of twelve miles to within half an inch, and this BY REFERENCE TO BUT ONE Table, in place of the usual Fifteeu minute computations required. This alone is evidence of the assistance which the Tables ensure to every user, and as every surveyor in active practice has felt the want of such assistance, few knowing of their publication will remain without them."-Engineer.
“We cannot sufficiently admire the heroic patience of the author, who, in order to prevent error, calculated each result by two different modes, and, before the work was fivally placed in the Printers' hands, repeated the operation for a third time, on revising the proofs."-Engineering.
