1848 Table to Compute Board Feet from a Log, Portland, Maine

A Correct Table for Ascertaining How Many Feet of Boards May Be Had from a Log of Any Given Dimensions, printed by A. Shirley and Son, Printers, Portland, 1848.

Comprised of one sheet of paper, 12" x 7-1/4", folded in half.

I can just imagine how valuable this little booklet must have been to estimators, loggers and landowners.
