Surveying the Early Republic - The Journal of Andrew Ellicott, U.S. Boundary Commissioner in the Old Southwest, 1796-1800... Surveying the Early Republic - The Journal of Andrew Ellicott, U.S. Boundary Commissioner in the Old Southwest, 1796-1800 (Hardcover, Annotated edition)
Robert D. Bush
R1,064 Discovery Miles 10 640 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In Surveying the Early Republic, Robert D. Bush contextualises the firsthand account of Andrew Ellicott, the United States Boundary Commissioner appointed by President George Washington in 1796. Ellicott and his Spanish counterparts established the boundary line between the United States and Spanish territory in North America after the United States and Spain signed the Treaty of San Lorenzo, opening the door to navigation of the Mississippi River and the export of American goods from the Spanish-held port of New Orleans. Over the course of this multiyear surveying project (1796-1800), Ellicott found himself entangled in the politics of these frontier lands, including an insurrection by inhabitants who favoured the United States against the existing Spanish regime. He also reported to his superiors on various rumors, plots, and political intrigues as well as on the secret activities of individuals in the pay of Spain, including U.S. Army General James Wilkinson. Regrettably, the widespread acclaim that followed the publication of Ellicott's journal in 1803, a year prior to the commencement of Lewis and Clark's expedition, faded over time. In this first edited and annotated version of that journal, Bush illuminates the commissioner's day-to-day narrative of events in what later became the Mississippi Territory and thus deepens our understanding of early American expansionism. In addition, Ellicott's accounts of personalities, plots, counter-plots, and Indian affairs depict with unparalleled clarity the tumultuous diplomatic experiences faced by President John Adams's administration as it pushed the bounds of America's frontier. Bush's deft treatment of this valuable primary source provides a critical contribution to the study of the history of early America.

Mapping the Four Corners - Narrating the Hayden Survey of 1875 (Hardcover): Robert S McPherson, Susan Rhoades Neel Mapping the Four Corners - Narrating the Hayden Survey of 1875 (Hardcover)
Robert S McPherson, Susan Rhoades Neel
R759 Discovery Miles 7 590 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In 1875, a team of cartographers, geologists, and scientists under the direction of Ferdinand V. Hayden entered the Four Corners area for what they thought would be a calm summer's work completing a previous survey. Their accomplishments would go down in history as one of the great American surveying expeditions of the nineteenth century. By skillfully weaving the surveyors' diary entries, field notes, and correspondence with newspaper accounts, historians Robert S. McPherson and Susan Rhoades Neel bring the Hayden Survey to life. Mapping the Four Corners provides an entertaining, engaging narrative of the team's experiences, contextualized with a thoughtful introduction and conclusion. Accompanied by the great photographer William Henry Jackson, Hayden's team quickly found their trip to be more challenging than expected. The travelers describe wrangling half-wild pack mules, trying to sleep in rain-soaked blankets, and making tea from muddy, alkaline water. Along the way, they encountered diverse peoples, evidence of prehistoric civilizations, and spectacular scenery - Hispanic villages in Colorado and New Mexico; Mesa Verde, Hovenweep, and other Anasazi sites; and the Hopi mesas. Not everyone they met was glad to see them: in southeastern Utah surveyors fought and escaped a band of Utes and Paiutes who recognized that the survey meant dispossession from their homeland. Hayden saw his expedition as a scientific endeavor focused on geology, geographic description, cartographic accuracy, and even ethnography, but the search for economic potential was a significant underlying motive. As this book shows, these pragmatic scientists were on the lookout for gold beneath every rock, grazing lands in every valley, and economic opportunity around each bend in the trail. The Hayden Survey ultimately shaped the American imagination in contradictory ways, solidifying the idea of ""progress"" - and government funding of its pursuit - while also revealing, via Jackson's photographs, a landscape with a beauty hitherto unknown and unimagined.

R1,620 Discovery Miles 16 200 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This new edition of Reporting for Buyers provides guidance for the surveyor on setting out the findings of the inspection in a clear, unambiguous and unequivocal way. The book provides a full, critical look at the current situation, describing the various types of report currently available to the public for commissioning. The limitations and attributes of these reports are discussed and their respective forms of advice considered in detail, together with the advice provided to buyers which is a legal requirement to Scotland. The authors stress the need for Surveyors to demonstrate their all-round abilities by putting themselves in their client's shoes to provide advice appropriate to their needs and requirements. In doing so they set out a cogent criticism of the standardised forms of advice offered to buyers and the lack of transparency in how they are presented by comparing what is seen by the client and what is set out in the various guidelines available. Surveyors will find the site notes and sample reports invaluable in demonstrating how the same dwelling can be described in the reports available. Sample reports include: mortgage valuation report RICS Condition Report RPSA Home Condition Survey Scottish Single Survey and the RICS Home Buyer Report. This book is intended for all those engaged in inspecting and reporting on dwellings, whether experienced , newly qualified or studying for appropriate qualifications to become members of professional institutions. It will also be found useful to conveyancing solicitors acting for lenders.
