From the PREFACE This manual is intended to familiarize the surveyor with the different types of old boundaries that exist throughout the country A great deal has been written on this general subject, especially in reference to the public lands of the West Very little, however, is being done on the conveyances of the Eastern States, and it is my hope to furnish something which may prove useful to those who are likely to meet with cases of this sort No attempt is made to describe how the lines should be measured the intent is rather to furnish suggestions as to the method of locating the line to be measured in short, finding it It is far important to have faulty measurements on the place where the line truly exists, than an accurate measurement where the line does not exist at all CONTENTS I The Work and Training of the Surveyor II The Description of Property Simple Deeds without Dimensions III The Relative Legal Value of Evidences of Boundary IV Landmarks Stakes and Stones V Landmarks continued Marked Timber Ditches and Balks VI Landmarks concluded Fences and Walls VII Deeds with Complete Descriptions VIII Sources of Error in Descriptions IX The Relations of the Surveyor and the Lawyer X House Lots XI House Lots concluded XII Highway Records XIII Re running Old Highway Records XIV Laying Out New Roads XV Responsibility of the Surveyor...

Boundaries and Landmarks: A Practical Manual Reviews
A very well-written book. Many of the thoughts for the surveyors of 1912 still hold true today, although some of the rights of the public in regards to roads and highways no longer exist.
Throughly enjoyed reading this. Having been in the surveying business for almost 40 yrs myself, its amazing how some things don't change in this seemingly ever changing world. History is worth preserving.
although this text is over 100 years old, the simple, basic, yet vastly important knowledge contained herein is vital to understanding the how and why of following in the footsteps of the earlier surveyor. I believe all modern surveyors should read this book.
I've been surveying for roughly 18 years and I truly enjoyed this down to earth book. His descriptions of types of tree blazes was something I hadn't thought of, I walked away with a deeper respect for boundary locating.
Its a deifferent kind of surveying book.....it is very old in copyright, and humorous at the same point
This is a great book that gives insight into some of the boundary conditions that a surveyor is likely to encounter in the rural areas of the Eastern states. It is a nice addition to any surveyor's library.
I am currently reading the book but its cover is beautiful. I bought this book because it was recommended in one of the seminars I attended in Oklahoma.
