    Attached you will find a pdf file with the comments I have on the [Bauer] book.
    That's quite a body of well-researched criticism, Nicolàs.  It occurs to me that you may be uniquely well-qualified to write the definitive history of early navigational devices.  Perhaps you should consider doing so. 
    Of course once you've created that magnum opus, a lasting testament to your carefully researched interest and a boon to all who might be interested in the subject, this unappreciative world could well amuse itself by picking your carefully constructed work to pieces.  Going through it with a fine-tooth comb and marvelling at all your mistakes.  Of such is fame.
