CORRECTIONS TO THE PAPERS ON THE COAST SURVEY, PUBLISHED IN THE PHILOSOPHICAL TRANSACTIONS OF PHILADELPHIA.

New York. 1826. 13pp. Dbd. Slight foxing, very good. Untrimmed. Item #WRCAM41296

An addendum to Hassler's report which was published in 1820. Hassler was a noted geodesist and scientist who initiated the U.S. Coast Survey. This pamphlet is the addendum to his first reports published before 1818, when the legislation for the Survey required that it be directed by a military officer. In a note to the reader, Hassler apologizes to the reader for the numerous errors: "The MS. delivered to the Philosophical Society, in February, 1820, required the corrections, which are needed...when an author does not use his native language."
