The country builder's estimator, or, the architect's companion : For estimating of new buildings, or repairing of old: in a concise and easy method, entirely new; and of use to gentlemen, or their stewards; master-workmen, artificers, or any person that undertakes or lets out work. Wherein the several artificers works concerned in building ... are fully, distinctly, and separately considered; and the prices ... inserted, not only of the workmanship, but of the materials ... Also, a new method to shew what light is proper for any room, and the proportion that the windows, chimnies, and funnels ought to have by a universal rule. To which is added, several new tables ... for the valuing of oak, or any other timber that is squared and cut to any scantling or size fit for building / By William Salmon, jun. of Colchester in Essex
