This is a revised and enlarged edition of Smith's classic, A MANUAL OF TOPOGRAPHICAL DRAWING, first published in 1854. At the time of its original issuance, the work stood as one of the only American treatises on the subject. It became a standard in the field, and is especially notable for instructing cadets at West Point, where Smith was professor of drawing.
