Since 1922, generations of lawyers and surveyors have worked out the legal pitfalls of retracing original surveys and reestablishing lost and obliterated corners using the late Frank Emerson Clark's classic work A Treatise on the Law of Surveying and Boundaries. The Eighth Edition of Clark on Surveying and Boundaries maintains the proven, easy-to-use format of earlier editions while digesting the latest case law, regulations, and statutes. Cited in decision after decision, Clark on Surveying and Boundaries is recognized by surveyors and lawyers as the authoritative reference on surveying and subdividing public lands.

More than 90 Years as a Ready Reference

In 1922, Frank Emerson Clark penned a preface to his "SURVEYING AND BOUNDARIES: A TREATISE on the LAW OF SURVEYING AND BOUNDARIES, " writing that he was submitting "the result of his labors in the belief that he has wrought out a work that will aid the surveyor in executing difficult surveys and will furnish the attorney a ready reference to the laws and decisions of the court on a subject of large importance. " For more than 90 years, the treatise has achieved Mr. Clark's goal, and is an important part of the libraries of surveyors, attorneys, and judges. In the 21st century, it is still cited by courts across the country.

Now in its 8th Edition, Clark on Surveying and Boundaries is now in a new loose-leaf format. The new loose-leaf binder design allows the Eighth Edition to become a living document, both in terms of personal use as well as future supplements. The annual updates will now be provided in loose-leaf format for easy incorporation into the binder - - eliminating the need to maintain and refer to separate annual supplements. Clark on Surveying and Boundaries is still updated by an attorney who is also a surveyor, Walter G. Robillard, Esq., RLS, and this treatise is enhanced by his insight and practical experience.
