I have been asked to re-post this chapter from Whife, The Art of Measuring.
 
This is a classic description of measuring from the English System.
 
The originals were scanned in a unusual way, with different horizontal and vertical dpi.  I have adjusted these images so that they are now easier to handle.

The book is The Art of Measuring by A.A. Whife. The uploaded pages make up the 1st half of the book.

There are some pages on measuring ladies' garments and determining the length of material required for certain garments.

Of course, I bet that the ladies measuring would be of interest to some.
