Covering absolutely all important areas of marine navigation, this volume may be deservedly called on of the best and classic training sources in the history. Note that the theoretical part of the publication is supplemented with numerous tables.
According to the author, the navigation itself is a sort of the art instructing the mariners in what manner they should conduct their vessels through the ocean, getting from one part of the world to another, in a safest but fastest way. Have a look in the book and save a copy for yourself. This will be a good and useful title in your collection of navigation related books even if you sail on a modern and fully equipped ship.
