(4),v-vii,(3),3-146. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "Part I reviews generally the (mostly geometrical) principles underlying the art ofnavigation. It is intended to refresh the memory, and, if necessary, re-or ientate the mind of the qualified navigator to the subject of the book: or,alternately, to set the neophyte on the right course from the start of his career as a practising navigator. Part II contains worked examples, and di scusses at some length various practical points of navigational policy. It also has chapters on the latest 'Short Methods', and on the use of wirelessbearings in combination with the astronomical position-line. Part III comp resse within a matter of 35 pages all the formulae, figures and procedures which are occasionally needed in connection with navigation, but which are not generally sufficiently used to keep them always fresh in the memory. This last part provides the book with permanent value to the practising navigator." -from the dustjacket. Very good in lightly rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 25.00
