    Re: Dutch Nautical Atlas/Almanac 1584

    Hi Bob

    An amazing piece. It's indeed addictive... This old style is very difficult to read.

    While looking-up some old Dutch words I encountered the following links with the same text, but type-written: 
        https://www.dbnl.org/tekst/wagh001spie01_01/index.php
        https://www.dbnl.org/tekst/wagh001spie01_01/wagh001spie01_01.pdf

    It is easier to read (...) and to decipher. Unfortunately the page nrs are not in sync.

    Although I am not familiar with the use of the various forms of an astrolabe, I guess that p23 gives a description of an astrolabe. Maybe somebody else can help with this.

    Regards,
    Huub
