    "Information on the first edition  can be found in:
    Adams, T.R. and Waters, D.W., /English Maritime Books Printed Before
    1801, Relating to Ships, Their Construction and Their Operation at Sea,
    Including Articles in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal
    Society and the Transactions of the American Philosophical Society/,
    (Greenwich, 1995)"
    By jove, Nicolas, that's a rare title! Where did you find that? I had never
    even heard of it, though I revere David Waters for his "Art of navigation
    The one used copy I can find for sale is by a US bookseller at about $400!.
    But they have it in the Bodleian, so I can look it out, next visit.
