    Thankyou Frank, that moves me usefully along the road. I am most grateful.
    Some more searching on Google turns up Vol. 1, "Surveying and
    Practical Astronomy" of "Hints to Travellers", edited for the Council
    of the Royal Geographical Society by John Coles and published in
    1901. This is most probably the volume to which Bagnold referred.
    Thanks again,
    Geoffrey Kolbe
