    I have an extensive collection of navigation  books but only have one copy of 
    Weems'  'Air Navigation'  third edition published in 1943.
    I have not seen a copy of his on Marine navigation.
    He came over to Britain to receive the Gold Medal from the Institute of 
    Navigation (not yet 'Royal' Institute) on 19th Oct 1955 for his outstanding 
    contributions to air and surface navigation.
    He had received an Award from the Royal Society of Arts in 1934 for his 
    invention of the second-setting watch.
    He received the Gold medal from the Aero Club of France in 1931 for his 
    textbook 'Air Navigation' published in 1931.
    A picture of his receiveing the Gold Medal from the president of the Institute 
    of Navigation,  Mr. D. H. Sadler. was published in the 1956 volume IX of the 
    Journal of the Institute of Navigation. I am unable to send it but if you 
    would like a copy I can do so if you contact me directly.
