While browsing jstor this evening I discovered, quite by chance, that Commander FN Shearme RN and Dr WM Smart M.A. D.S.c wrote the 1922 edition of the Admiralty of Navigation. What I find interesting is that I never thought of the Admiralty Manual having an "author" and never considered that, like any other book, it would be reviewed. I intend to read the review more closely as on first glance it seems to reflect some of my thoughts about the Admiralty Manual. I had intended to post some comments about why I prefer Bowditch 1958 for research to my various copies of the Manual. Maybe I will still post those comments.
