This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...It may be further than this, but if nearer it may appear distorted. Measuring.--Procure a box (a common crayon box is an excellent model) and place it before you as in Fig. 2. To measure the edge A B, hold your pencil at easy arm's length away; close one eye; let the upper end of the pencil correspond in height with corner A on the box, and with your thumb mark corner B as in Fig. 1. This does not measure the real length of line 1, but simply gives a unit with which to compare other lines. For example: you measure line 1 and compare it with the length of line 2 to see which is the longer. In ordei to learn how to thus measure, make the following measurements: 1. Compare the length of line 1 with the length of line 2. Which is the longer? 2. Compare the length of line 1 with the length of line 3. 3. Which is the longer, line 2 or line 3? 4. Which is the longer, line 1 or the horizontal distance between lines 1 and 2? Note.--This measuring with the pencil is done by simply turning the hand on the wrist. Care must be taken when making this and all similar comparisons not to let the pencil slant or recede in the direction of the receding surface. The pencil must be kept at right angles with the arm at all times when measuring. This is the most important point in measuring and must be observed. 5. Which is longer, the length of line 1 or the horizontal distance between lines 2 and 3? 6. AVhich is the longer, the distance between lines 1 and 2 or between 1 and 3? 7.
