About This Item

Large 8vo, leather, 13 number plates (missing map) 449, [3] pp.Spine cracked, missing front endpapers, and one plate, piece missing from upper spine, wear at edges and joints, some tips of pages folded, normal aging and foxing. Bowditch (1773-1838) was born in Salem Massachusetts, and after spending nine years at sea, and after finding so many errors in Morris's work on navigation he produced his own title on the subject. First published in 1802, his American Practical Navigator was immensely popular. He would publish ten editions during his lifetime, but many other editions were published, and in 1867 it became a U.S. Government publication.It continues to be a highly respected encylopedia of navigation.
