This classic work on marine navigation is actually intended to be used by the people with little mathematical training willing to get necessary qualification in the area. The author of the book has presented the material in a form easily understandable even to the newcomers and students. Every effort has been made to avoid complex mathematical exercises and abstractions normally having no real practical use to the navigators.

The text part of the volume is supplemented with numerous useful and informative data diagrams and graphical explanations for better understanding of the subject. Though the publication is quite compact in size, its content covers all important aspects of marine navigation. The topics addressed in the volume include the compass and dead reckoning, time and piloting, the sextant and correction of the altitude, explanation of the latitude, longitude from the stars and the Sun, position lines and other information.

The volume has already proven effective through the good feedbacks by several generations of the readers, noting that it was released more than a century ago. However, its content is still valid as it bases on the theoretical knowledge therefore retaining its value for the students.
