reference to Spanish and French land measures (and their English
equivalents) used in North America has been out of print for six
decades, since its original publication in 1946. This edition has been
revised, smartly redesigned and re-indexed to present Mr. Reasonover's
extensive conversion charts in a far more usable fashion. It was
already a fantastic book...we just made it more user friendly! We're proud to have our edition serve as standard issue material for all newly hired landmen at several major North American O&G development companies.
Exhaustive conversion tables include varas to feet & yards,
superficial arpents to acres, lineal arpents to feet and much more.
The book is available in hardcover format, bound in gray cloth.
Handsome dust jacket features two antique Texas manuscript maps from
private collections. It's not just a useful reference book - it'll look
mighty good in your bookcase, too!
