    Marvin: Right, "Line of Position Navigation: Sumner and
    Saint Hilaire the Two Pillars of Modern Celestial
    Navigation" contains an exact reprint of the entire first
    edition of Sumner's historic publication of 1843. The
    introduction to this chapter contains some biographical
    notes on Sumner, but, unfortunately, I have not been able to
    turn up where he was buried. The following chapter contains
    some biographical notes on Marcq Saint-Hilaire as well as
    translations of two of his important "intercept method"
    publications ca. 1875 for any body interested.
