This is another classic publication on marine navigation. The book was first published in early twentieth century, namely back in 1902, and today it is deservedly treated as a very valuable historical work. The present book is intended to be used exclusively by the sailors and its content was compiled on the basis of the author's experience of sailing and ship navigation.

One of the recognized navigation experts of his times, the author managed to collect all information on the ship navigation, process it and present in a form of the textbook providing readily available instructions and tips. The volume is covering absolutely all areas and this makes it very useful and practical even to the navigators and students of today.

Of course, one shall understand the difference in the techniques and especially navigational equipment and systems available at those times and today, but we do understand that theoretical fundamentals of ship navigation have not significantly changed since then. The text part of the treatise is accompanied with the numerous data diagrams and tables. An absolutely recommended and must-have publication for every professional and future ship navigator.
