This book, along with it's companion, "Brown's Boundary Control and Legal Principles", are the standard textbooks for land boundary surveying. Evidence and Procedure was first written in 1962 by Curtis Brown and was a great basic text on the subject. Mr. Brown passed away around 1990 after publishing the 3rd edition. Successive editions since then have become increasingly complex. This 6th edition is nearly double the weight of the 1st. Which means it has become more of a reference for professional surveyors rather than an entry point for the student.I suggest that the reader purchase a 1st edition (the shipping will cost you more than that book), read that, and only then dive into this 6th edition. Same advise with "Boundary Control", except in that case look for a 2nd edition. The first edition of "Boundary Control" is rare and therefore expensive.I paid a little over $40 for my 6th edition. If you can wait, watch for the price to drop.
Any person who is interested in becoming a professional land surveyor must have this book in his library. You cannot be a practicing professional without having studied this text. I studied an earlier version when I was in college 20+ years ago, and have used it in teaching my Legal Aspects of Land Surveying class. An excellent resource.
Great Book for class, class projects, and studying for the FS, FE, PS or PE. So, far I have used this book for 4 classes. I believe it was a great buy. I have kept it. I would suggest not selling it back. 5th Edition or newer is best...
The book is still easily navigable due to it's wonderful table of contents, however it is not searchable as I assumed it would be. After all, my digital copy of the 5th edition is. Very disappointimg that it isn't. But still, 56% off cover price, to have it with me everywhere I go....totally worth the navigation issues. Besides, I can make my own bookmarks for things I find of import. I do wish would let us know when a book is not indexed. This was my first BIG purchase. But I'm still pleased.
I bought this book for my husband, who was a land surveyor. He says it's the most thorough, accurate, helpful, and interesting text out there.
