by Charles H. Cotter ePUB
The purpose of the book is to provide a full and up-to-date text on nautical astronomy in the belief that a gap exists in the literature of navigation that needs to be filled. There are good systematic courses in navigation but he need exists for something more than mere manuals of navigation. This book introduces some historical background and gives an appreciation of the remarkable and unfailing science which enables sailors plan their landfalls with confidence.
