PDF on file.

A typical example of this annual publication issued by K&E for circa 80 years. A field reference work, it does include instructional information for use of selected types of instruments. Alidades, although mentioned, and plane table surveying are not covered as they are in later years.

While the cover and title page state New York, K&E had their offices and factory in Hoboken at this time.

Promotional copy is present for related instruments and surveyor's tools along with the K&E Surveyor's Duplex Slide Rule (pp 27-28), a 20 inch slide useful for using the tables and doing calculations in the field or office.
