Thanks Charles, very useful. Also interesting would be:

M. Pommiés: Manuel de l'ingénieur du cadastre. Paris 1804


the official manual for the Napoleonic cadastre. More practical than 
most of the works you mention, but very important, as it forms the base 
for most cadastral surveys in continental Western Europe in the first 
half of the 19th century.
