Description

First published in 1947 with a second expanded edition in 1954, Geometry of Construction remains the most concise and instructive guide to geometry, and a vital resource for students and professionals in architecture, carpentry, stone masonry and engineering.Beginning with the very basics of technical drawing this new reprint of the 1954 edition provides a series of increasingly complex exercises to clearly explain all that the reader needs to know about the subject. A feature of the book is its layout, which is a model of clarity, linking concise, easy to follow instructions side by side with extremely clear and detailed diagrams. These progress from the basics such as angles, chords, the circle and the construction of scales, to some of the most complex challenges, including spiral curves, intersecting mouldings and geometrical tracery.-Includes basic principles, progressing to more complex and intricate details-Combines clear, detailed drawings with careful explanations-Provides a series of steps helping the reader to test their skills-High quality reproduction of original 1954 second edition
