    I came across that book while browsing in a library. It looked like a
    coffee table book and I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly
    surprised. It has much of interest for the navigation enthusiast. The
    price is low for a book of such quality.
    
    It's somewhat US-centric, but that's understandable since the
    Smithsonian is the publisher, and the authors are from US museums. In
    fact, the book is full of photos of navigation artifacts in the museum
    collections.
    
    Happily, the much told story of the Longitude Prize and Harrison is
    omitted in favor of more obscure stuff like Gago Countinho (sp?) and his
    sextants.
    
    I was at the library a few days ago and looked for the book so I could
    do a better write up. But someone had it checked out.
