ex McNeill’s Mining & General Telegraphic Code (1895)

contemplating what might be done, allowing for bleeds. the idea of the codex precedes the writing, raises questions of sequencing, permutations. and something about how grids convert land (or its representations) to real estate — property? properties? — and sounding (alas) like my professorial self.

derived from Fig. 1, ex Henry S. Rawdon, Some unusual features in the microstructure of wrought iron. Transactions of the American Institute of Mining Engineers 58 (1918): 493-509
