Not illustrated. 1851 edition. Excerpt: ...add to the expense. 1583. Why should it add to the expense?--Because the engraver will be limited to making his lines ofcertain length, and they must all stop at a certain line. 1584. But if the contour lines were to be dotted down first very slightly, would not that facilitate the engraver's operations very much?----Still it would increase the cost of the vertical hachures. 1585. Would it be more expensive of itself than the com binution of the contours and the vertical hachu1'esP-I think it would be more expensive, and I do not think that the physical relief would be shown so well as in the Welsh and north of England maps. 1586. You speak confidently of that?----Yes; at the same time, it is not new. 1587. Has it ever been tried in your department?---Not in our oflice, but it has been tried in various places to do it. 1588.
