This classic volume is the original work first presented more than a century ago. Though so much time has passed since the date of its original release, the content of the book retains importance and self-descriptiveness. Created by the prominent experts of the past times, the volume provides useful information and tells readers about the things that are quite difficult to be found explained in most of the other available publications.

The style of explanation is very clear allowing the material to be easily understood and followed for the people with little to no sailing experience at all. The main content of the book is arranged in six sections covering the trigonometry, the mariner's compass, the sailings, construction of charts, terrestrial magnetism, the propeller wheel, explanation of the tables, traverse table, nautical sines/cosines, tangents/cotangents, secants/cosecants.

As you can see, the layout of the publication remains intact - in fact, this is the digitized original version of the useful manual which will be of great practical interest even to the modern navigators and students since the author addresses the very basic, fundamental knowledge on which any contemporary navigation technique are built.
