Description: This book is a history of nautical astronomy. But it is more than that. Captain Charles H. Cotter has done more than trace the sequence of events leading to man's present extensive knowledge of celestial navigation. With discerning care he has delved into representative solutions of various stages of man's developing knowledge, and gives the reader the mathematical as well as philosophical explanations of methods which are now generally known only by name or not at all by many members of a rising generation who have been too absorbed in finding solutions to today's problems to take time to learn of those of other ages.
