Norie's Nautical Tables

Capt AG Blance (Editor)

This famous set of mathematical tables was first published in 1803. It has been a bestseller ever since, and despite developments in electronic navigation it remains an essential requirement for anyone learning and practising astro-navigation. Last updated in 1994, the editor, George Blance, has worked for some time on the modernisation of all the tables for this major new edition.

New tables have been included, obsolete ones deleted to conform with changing techniques of navigation, with the aim of improving the accuracy of the calculated position and reducing the tedium of the calculation.

All the tables required for coastal and deep sea navigation are included. A simple uniform method of interpolation for all the trigonometrical tables is used. Certain tables and data are also included which are not readily available on board ship or are only used in the examination room.

A4, 600pp, hardback.
