    The surveying instruments book by Stanley? Try archive.org:
    The first link is the Google scan. In the "View the book" box on the 
    left, the "PDF (Google.com)" link takes you to the online Google reader. 
      It might work, even though you could not read the book directly 
    through Google.
    Sometimes archive.org is the only way to find a book on Google. I have 
    seen this more than once: a book does not appear in a Google search, but 
    archive.org has a good link to the book - in Google!
    The "Read Online" link on that page uses the archive.org reader. I find 
    it very slow compared to Google's reader, but I don't have a high speed 
    To download the whole book, in the "View the book" box click "All Files: 
    HTTPS". That takes you to a list of files where you can choose the 
    desired format.
    The second link to archive.org is a Microsoft scan of the same book. 
    Often Google's scans do not have enough resolution if the text includes 
    mathematical formulas. ("Is that exponent a 2 or a 3?") Note the larger 
    file sizes in the second link.
    Stanley's book on drawing instruments is online too. It's in this list 
    of seach hits:
    My previous message also had a link a page in the Keuffel & Esser 
    magazine "The Compass". But it's just a picture. I wouldn't have 
    included it, except that Bruce asked for anything from K&E. It's in 
    volume 2 of the magazine. Unfortunately, archive.org has only vol 1. But 
    the magazine is interesting.
