Latitude and Longitude : How to Find Them (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from Latitude and Longitude: How to Find Them This series has been designed to meet the growing desire on the part of Officers in the Mercantile Marine for a more scientific insight into the principles of their pro fession, and the sciences upon which the Art of Navigation is founded. The treatises are, for the most part, written BY sailors for sailors; and, where this is not the case, by authors who have special knowledge of the subjects dealt with and their application to the Sailor's life. The treatment will be thoroughly scientific, yet as free as pos sible from abstruse technicalities, and the style such as will render it easy for the young sailor to gain a knowledge of the elements of his profession by private reading and without difficulty.
