This classic and historically valuable publication is not only the official and complete guidebook for the US Examination of Masters & Mates, a full treatise on marine navigation, law of storms and astronomy, but also a nice textbook to be used by the students and practicing marine navigators as a reference tool. The volume contains the complete list of questions that used to be given by the examiners, making it a good preparation book for the subject exams.
The publication covers the whole range of problems and every single requirement for those applying for the license on either steam or sail ships. Needless to say that even though the book is not in a wide use in the maritime shipping industry of today, it should still be interesting to the people fond of the ships of the past times.
Written by the recognized professional mariner with great seagoing experience, this publication will be useful for those willing to understand the concept of the ocean-going an sailing vessels, including explanations on the main navigation principles, associated calculations and so many other relevant areas that should be well known and understandable to anyone willing to work on board subject vessels.
