11Title:  Surveys of North Carolina, 1752   
 Creator:  Churton, William. 
 Notes:  The collection consists of seven manuscript surveys of land owned by John Carteret in western North Carolina. Churton and others carried out the survey on behalf of the Moravian Church during the 1752 expedition of Bishop Gottlieb Spangenberg. The surveys are at a scale of 30 chains per acre and measure approximately nine by seven inches each. Churton's maps were used as a source for printed maps of Colonial America, including later editions of Fry and Jefferson's A Map of the Most Inhabited Part of Virginia (after 1755), Collet's A Compleat map of North-Carolina (1770), and Mouzon's An Accurate Map of North and South Carolina (1775).

13Title:  Engineering notebooks, 1830-1832   
 Creator:  Watson, John, fl. 1830 
 Notes:  The records consist of five volumes relating to the construction of the Delaware Division Canal. The volumes best serve as physical artifacts of the canal construction process. Three volumes give the location survey after the route had been laid out by the engineers. They give the bearings of the canal, along with the amount of land taken from owners along the route, with an accounting of all structures, orchards, farmlands and other improvements that were destroyed or damaged by the construction. A fourth volume is a pocket notebook of surveyor's tables to be used in connection with operating a transit. The fifth volume is Watson's pocket field notebook covering the years 1830-1832. It appears to record local property surveys as well as work on the canal, along with small land transactions that may represent right-of-way purchases for the canal. The last pages of this pocketbook record a trip through Northwestern New Jersey in the fall of 1832. The itinerary included Flemington, Schooley's Mountain, Hackettstown, Great Meadows and Belvidere, returning by way of Easton. It includes observations on the state of the country, the effect of the Morris Canal and the examination of a purported silver mine.

18Title:  The imaginary line: a history of the United States and Mexican boundary survey, 1848-1857   
 Creator:  Werne, Joseph Richard, 1943- | Roger S. Baskes Collection (Newberry Library) 
 Publication:  Texas Christian University Press, Fort Worth, Tex, ©2007. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 233-244) and index. "In The Imaginary Line: A History of the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, 1848-1857, Joseph Richard Werne sets out to explore this border and the men who drew it. Using a variety of sources, including manuscripts, government documents, contemporary accounts, and memoirs, he creates a map of his own, one that revises the common view of the U.S.-Mexican Commission as directed and funded almost entirely by the United States." "The diverse group of military and civilian surveyors, engineers, and politicians that composed the Joint Commission had to reconcile disparate personal interests and backgrounds, as well as different maps and equipment. Their efforts were of "epic quality" and represent the coinciding cooperation and conflict that describe border relations today. Werne's study describes their lives and work, their survival in the hostile environment, and their struggles with inadequate funding and government corruption, tying their stories into the approaching civil war in the United States, the rapidly lengthening transcontinental railroad, and political instability in Mexico."--Jacket.
