Méthode simple et facile pour lever les plans, suivie d’un traité du nivellement et d’un abrégé des règles du lavis. F. Lecoy, published by Chez Duponcet, quai de la Greve, 34, Paris, 1805. First edition of an important text on map-making and architectural and landscaping rendering, it is profusely illustrated with 12 fold-out plates, most of them hand-colored. Condition is superb for a volume of this age, with only minor fading and flaws -- even the silk bookmark is intact.
