Two suggestions: Witold Kula has written a fascinating book on the subject, *Measures and Men*, but it doesn't deal with early America at all. On the measures used by surveyors, look for a book written about that group in colonial Virginia by Sarah Shaver Hughes (the title escapes me) and pub- lished, I believe, by the Virginia State Library about ten years ago.
