Catalogue Note

A work mainly concerned with the conversion, by arithmetic and geometric means, of various types of French measurements used in surveying and construction.

This edition is not recorded by Hoock & Jeannin (II/C41.1), who describe one printed at Lyon: F. Roux, 1683 (copy in Bibliothèque nationale de France). Two copies of the present edition are in the Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon; it seems to be otherwise unknown.
