Scope & Content K&E Theodites. Manual No. 73 0135. Instruction Manual; Operation, Care, Adjustment. Keuffel & Esser Co., New York & Hoboken, copyright 1960, 1966. Booklet, 4-5/8" wide x 7"high; pp 62, illustrations, photographs. (Pages 61-[62] fold out to 21" wide with photo keyed photographs of the instrument's parts; page 61 has one illustration clipped out.)

This booklet was for all theodolite models then offered by the company:
One second, KE-2 and KE-2e
Twenty second, KE-1 and KE-1e
One minute, KE-6 and KE-6e

These transits for surveying work were designed and stocked in Hoboken, but they were no longer made here. They were made by Askania - Werke of Germany and the product carried both their name and K&E. The booklet itself was printed in the U.S.A.

With the late copyright of 1966 and Hoboken on the title page, this booklet would have been issued correctly up to the end of 1968 when K&E left Hoboken for a new headquarters in Morristown, N.J.
