One of the oldest volumes available here. The book is devoted to the application of the science of trigonometry to the marine navigation. Note, however,, that regardless of the title of this publication, the readers are not actually expected to be excessively proficient in the trigonometry or mathematics. Every effort was made by the author to present the subject in the maximum intelligible manner.
The content of the book is arranged in four big sections, starting with the section on plane trigonometry covering the functions of acute angles, goniometry, right triangle, oblique triangle plus numerous examples and tables. The second section covers the spherical trigonometry together with all its application.
The third section of the book deals with the surveying matters, particularly triangulation, land surveying, levelling etc. finally, the closing section of the publication addresses the navigation, including the sailings and nautical astronomy, and all definitions normally used in the field. The book will be of particular interest to the collectors of the ancient books on marine navigation and to all those willing to know more about the underlying concepts of the navigation.
