About This Item

Large 8vo, handsomely rebound in modern leather with spine label, 13 plates, including folding map, plus additional folding table, 460 [2], 1pp.Normal aging and foxing; a very nice copy. 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 encylopedia of navigation.
