    This is the first issue I have read and look forward to future publications. Regarding the Mapping Washington presentation, the author (and good friend) of a book on a closely related subject presented me with a gift copy yesterday. The book, published this year, is Building Washington: Engineering and Construction of the New Federal City, 1790-1840 and is written by Robert J, Kapsch a very competent and knowledgeable architect and engineer.
