A complete copy of an important navigation text by J.W. Norie for the East India Company dated 1848 (14th Edition). Octavo size (6 x 9″), 360 pages with half devoted to mathematical tables and the other half to various methods of navigation for both latitude and longitude using old and new methods (including plates of instruments, astronomy and World map). Well used, judging by the cover and worn spine but tight with no foxing, loose or missing pages or water damage. This is the text to own if your interest is in navigation and all relevant methods of such. At the time of publication, Norie was the foremost authority on the subject (made easy ?). Could be re-covered/re-bound for a modest price.
