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 immenslley popular. He would publish ten editions during his lifetme, but many other editions would be published, and in 1867 it would become a U.S. Government publication. It continues to be a highly respected enclopedia of navigation.
