This book provides a practical guide to preparing measured surveys of historic buildings, with special emphasis on recording the fabric. For this new edition, the text on hand survey methods has been revised to note where new techniques and equipment can be incorporated, as well as explaining where more advanced survey methods may be best used to advantage. Information on locating early maps and plans, aerial photography and its uses, documentary research, procurement of surveys and conventional photography has been incorporated at various points as appropriate. In addition, the chapters dealing with modern survey practice using instruments and photographic techniques has been extensively redrafted to reflect current methodology.
