Practical measuring made easy to the meanest capacity : by a new set of tables; which shew at sight, the solid or superficial content (and consequently the Value) of any piece or quantity of timber, stone, board, glass, &c. used in Building, &c. Also, The Solid Content (and consequently the Value) of all Kinds of Squared or Round Timber, whether it be Standing or Felled. Contrived to answer all the Occasions of Gentlemen and Artificers, far beyond any Thing yet extant, the Contents being given in Feet, Inches, and Twelfth Parts of an Inch. With an Preface; Shewing the Convenience and Excellence of this New Method, and Demonstrating, that whoever ventures to rely upon those obsolete Tables and Directions Published by Isaac Keay, is liable to be deceived (in common Cases) 10 s. in the Pound.
