The main objective of the present publication at the time of its release was to acquaint students with the major rules and most common problem in marine navigation. It was expected to be of the practical use when carrying out their day to day activities on board vessels. The theory of navigation is presented using the short definitions. The whole experience of the author has been reflected in the pages of this volume.

Numerous problems of navigation have been covered. One of the remarkable features of this book is that the author made every effort to avoid digging too deep into the theory so that the reading and understanding the subject is easier to the people with no background. All of the terminology used in navigation has been covered and explained in detailed.

Moreover, the information has been presented in the way making it very reader-friendly – each of the articles deals with some particular topic. For example, there are articles on compass adjustments, ship’s business, arithmetic of navigation and o many others. This approach used by the author guaranteed the popularity to this book and this is the main reason why it is still used today, more than one century after it had been first published.
