    You can download Cotter’s 1974 thesis as a pdf (825 pages) from the EThOS website




    First create a free account, then follow the links to the download link.


    Searching with “navigation”, “nautical”, “Nautical Almanac”, etc. will lead you to some other interesting UK theses on these topics.

    Subject: [NavList] Charles H Cotter's PhD Thesis


    Quite by chance I have come across a book rerview - I should call it microfiche review - of an 856 page thesis by Charles H Cotter for a PhD in 1975.  The thesis was  titled "A History of Nautical Astronomical Tables" and was was published on ten mcrofiche. I did not know that Cotter had a doctorate.  As the reviewer asks - Captain Doctor or Doctor Captain?


    I am keen to  read his thesis as it is about my prime area of interest. Does anyone know if it is available online? I admit that I have not yet tried google.
