    Historical navigation books online
    From: Frank Reed CT

    I've found another navigation book available online through "Google Books".
    Previously I've mentioned the google books copy of the "Epitome of Navigation" by Janet Taylor, 1851. Equally interesting are two editions of her "Hand-book to the Local marine board examination ". The third edition from 1853 and the twentieth from 1860 are both there.

    From an obituary in 1870:
    "Mrs Janet Taylor was for many years a teacher of navigation, at 104, Minories. By her singular abilities in that branch of science, she gained the confidence and approval of the Board of Admiralty and the Trinity Brethren, as well as several foreign powers, from whom she has received medals for her various publications on navigation and astronomy, and also improvements she has made in many nautical instruments."

    42.0N 87.7W, or 41.4N 72.1W.
