SEVENTH EDITION. ENLARGED AND IMPROVED.
(ENTERED AT THE STATIONERS' HALL.)
AND ALL NAUTICAL BOOKSELLERS.
The New Edition of this Guide Book is issued with the
fullest confidence, that (like the former Editions) it will be found acceptable to Candidates about to undergo the Board of
Trade Examinations. It is now well-known at those Exami.
nations the strictest accuracy is required in all the calculations ; it is, therefore, all the more necessary that each candidate should, by continued and extended practice, endeavour to make
himself what is termed an accurate worker.
Having this in view, the author has introduced a large
number of examples of each problem, including the various
styles in which it is likely they may be given by the Examiner.
The Elements from the Nautical Almanac for 1885, and
from the Admiralty Tide Tables for 1884, will be found useful
to candidates who have not those useful publications at hand
when practising while at sea.
