    Late 16th Century Navigation Manual on web
    From: Gerard Mittelstaedt
    Date: 1999 Mar 28, 11:26 PM

    The Seamans Secrets, a navigation manual authored by
     John Davis  is now available at the following URL
    
    http://www.mcallen.lib.tx.us/books/seasecr/dseasec0.htm
    
    The above brings up the transcriber's introductory comments
    which leads to 2 largish pages, one for Book 1 and the other
    for Book 2
    
    Http://www.mcallen.lib.tx.us/books/seasecr/dseasec1.htm
      begins the first book (of 2)
    
    The 8th edition from which this was transcribed was published
    in 1643 in England.
    
    Illustrations and tables are included as GIF files.
    
    If it seems a little rough... you should see the "original"
    from whence it was transcribed!
    
    
    If, for any reason the above URLs don't want to work,
    go to the main homepage and look for "Books" which
    will lead you to the book

    Enjoy,
