An attractive and well-preserved manuscript copy book, signed at the end by one John Bateman, examining arithmetical, geometrical, and other problems connected to land surveying. After a section on geometric definitions, Bateman discusses chain and cross staff surveying, before offering a series of problems on the surveying of different shapes of field, multi-sided fields, and curved fields. Bateman demonstrates the rules and techniques by which one can calculate land areas, with the use of attractive coloured diagrams and plans.

While it may be tempting to identify the present author with the civil engineer of the same name (1810-1889), such an identification seems most unlikely.
