One of my favorite books in my own library is the 1916 Biennial Report of the Director from the Michigan Geological and Biological Survey, in which there is an account of the resurvey of the Michigan - Ohio border. There is a very careful account and survey of all of the properties that the border crosses, along with as much history of the original marks of the border as can be unearthed, and accounts of where the straight line border deviates from straight to match the actual land use at the time. (A few people's barns changed states as a result, but not more than were absolutely needed.)
The link above goes to the Google Books copy which is scanned in from the Stanford collection. It's great that I now have this ready at my fingertips whenever I want to look at it without going up to a high shelf to pull it down, except that a few pages (notably pages following p.37) are missing their maps, and that it was pure happenstance that I found it because the title page reads
By Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (Australia). Division of Chemical Physics, Geological Survey Division
well, no, that's not who published it.
I reported both of those errors to Google Book Search through the feedback mechanism; it makes me wonder just what the systematic error rate is on geological and biological survey books, since there was an era when all of them had map or plate inserts that folded out and the typical "every page is the same size" style of scanning is going to get this wrong more often than not.
