    Re: Smart and Shearme Position Line Tables

    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.

    The Geographical Journal, vol. 64, no. 5, 1924, pp. 420–421. JSTOR, www.jstor.org/stable/1781711. Accessed 3 May 2020.
