Here are links to the relevant sections of Chauvenet's book and Simms's book. To the modern eye, the treatments are a bit, shall we say, overly geometric, but that's OK.
Thanks for the links. I managed to unload full copies of both publications for free and take a quick look. To appreciate them fully, I'll need to sit down when I've time to give them my full attention. Is there any errata list for Chauvenet on NavList like the one I found some time ago for Cotter? DaveP
