    Just want to add some extra info that can be derived from abebooks' 
    descriptions (these are just copied from their web site):
    - Contents include Henry the navigator, Columbus, astronomical 
    instruments, Oceanography etc.
    - The methods and the inventions which sailors have used to find their 
    way about the ocean when out of sight of land.
    - 31 plates on 14 and numerous illustrations, diagrams and maps in the text
    - A fascinating tracing of the earliest methods of navigation, the 
    invention of the compass, quadrant, sextant & finally all modern equipment.
    - 50 Illustrations & 5 Maps (illustrator)
    - translated from the Swedish by Maurice Michael
