The quest for the true figure of the Earth : ideas and expeditions in four centuries of geodesy by Michael Rand Hoare( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, the 'Figure of the Earth' controversy is for the first time comprehensively explored in all its several dimensions. It shows how a largely neglected episode of European science that produced no spectacular process or artefact - beyond a relatively minor improvement in maps - nevertheless represents an almost unique combination of theoretical prediction and empirical method. It also details the suffering of the two teams of scientists in very different extremes of climate, whose sacrifices for the sake of knowledge rather than colonial gain, caught the imagination of the literary world of the time."--Jacket
