This classic publication was originally designed to be used by the officers of naval militia as well as by the yachtsmen and all future mariners and it did gain the success and popularity among all professionals of the coast services in many countries of the world. Every effort was made by the author to keep the size of the book compact to make it convenient for the everyday use.

However, it contains all information about the practical navigation you may need. The book was published long time ago and managed to stand the test of more than a century. Note that despite the year of original release, the material presented in the publication is still valid and useful since the basics of the marine navigation have not changed – of course, the latest technological advances in the field of navigational equipment could not be covered, by the essentials remained same.

The instructions prepared by the author are as concise as possible but the clearness of the explanations is still there, making the contents understandable to all categories of readers. The use of high mathematics has been avoided wherever possible and this is another reason why the publication can be recommended to the broader readership.
