This classic book was written in the early twentieth century with the intention of the author to provide people willing to study navigation science with a good textbook they could you when preparing for their examinations. The information is presented in a very simple and easily understandable manner so this volume can be used by the beginner level students.
Note that the students are not expected to have a deep knowledge of mathematics, just simple arithmetic would be sufficient to understand the material presented in the pages of this book. Of course it shall be noted that no important information has been omitted. Numerous examples have been added by the author to illustrate the computation methods covered by the author.
The volume opens with the description of the major instruments commonly used in marine navigation, the compass and nautical charts, then we proceed to the piloting techniques and navigation tools, in fact all aspects have been covered. This is a very good textbook for the collection of any person with the deep interest in marine navigation and historical books on the subject, as the publication is very rare and you one can hardly find the book in any of the book shops today.
