Summary
"Initially prepared as a text-book for mature students, this slim volume now serves to instruct serious researchers on the American survey system in non-technical terms. Easy-to-read, comprehensive in scope, the original edition was issued in 1894. Over a century earlier, the future president, Jefferson, had based his report on public statutes and original documents; his compilation was submitted to Congress in 1784. The introduction is new to this edition, written by a renowned authority on land records as valuable tools for genealogical research. It places the work in modern-day perspective for genealogists and historians who recognize the immense potential importance of records dealing with land and the conveyance of real-property." -- Publisher website (December 2008)
