Bullet (1639-1716), "Architecte du Roy," was the author of the often reprinted L'ARCHITECTURE PRATIQUE (1691), which became a standard (v. Fowler, pp. 69-70) for the next 100 years. Bullet's Traité is similarly written in a spirit of pure practicality, treating that branch of surveying known as levelling, and illustrated with wonderful engravings.
