    Equal Altitude method, The Institute of Geographical Exploration
    From: G Becker
    Date: 2011 Jul 27, 08:27 -0700

    The mailman just dropped off my new acquisition; Complete 60deg star lists for the position fixing by the equal altitude method. Printed for The Institute of Geographical Exploration in 1930. According to Harvard's website, the institute was shut down because "geography was not a proper subject for the university".

    I have a fascination with the prismatic astrolabe, which led me toward this book. I noticed the book is listed on the navlist library, is it common? I cannot find many references to it.
