FIRST EDITION. Leonard Digges died before he finished this treatise on surveying, so it was completed and extended by his son Thomas. While some of the surveying matter had previously appeared in works by Apianus and Gemma Frisius, this is the first appearance of descriptions of the use of these instruments in English. This volume also contains the first description of the theodolite, a term coined by Digges in this work, though the instrument itself was already in use on the Continent. There is even a brief mention of the use of lenses, indicating that Digges had ideas about the telescope before it was first described properly in 1608.
