Book Title: The American Practical Navigator: An Epitome of Navigation 1995 Edition (Hardcover)

Author: Nathaniel Bowditch

Book Description:

This book has helped me "navigate" in my area of research interests by providing a plethora of fascinating and wonderful applied math and science equations on the subject of NAVIGATION.

Reading Bowditch also helped me better understand both early and modern navigation technology; and admire the courage of early sailing expeditions that were not afraid to navigate into the unknown. And without GPS!
