The present collection of selected meteorological tables is one of the rarest and oldest navigation publications available. The book was originally published more that hundred and fifty years ago, in 1852. Of course there have been so many technological developments in the field of maritime navigation since then; however, the book will still be good to the people with the interest in practical meteorology.

The main content of the publication has been arranged in four major section. The first section contains thermometrical tables and comparison of the thermometrical scales, in total there are fifteen tables with supplementary information. The second section contains five hygrometrical tables including elastic forces of aqueous vapors, psychometrical tables for deducing the force of vapor, relative humidity etc.

The third section provides barometrical tables including reduction of the barometrical observations. Finally, the last fourth section of the volume contains hypsometrical tables. Each of the series features distinct paging that runs throughout the set, it is there at the page bottom. Have a look in the book and you may like to have it in your collection. The appendix is dealing with the comparison of the English-French length measures.
