    William Bourne. A Regiment for the Sea. 1574
    From: Brad Morris
    Date: 2009 Oct 14, 08:06 -0700

    Attached please find a transcript of William Bourne's sixth chapter from
    "A Regiment for the Sea".  I tried to get a letter for letter transcript to
    give the feel of the document.  Naturally, spell checking this document was 
    impossible, given the wild spellings of various words.  Any errors in this 
    transcript remain mine.
    
    Some interesting points are
    1) Contemporary (1574) practical advice on how to use a cross staff
    2) Contemporary (1574) practical advice on how to use an Astrolobe
    3) Determination of your meridian
    4) Contemporary azimuths of the sun
    5) Contemporary amplitudes of the sun
    6) Variation of the compass
    7) His opinion as to the determination of Longitude from the variation
    
    Enjoy!!!
    
    Best Regards
    Brad
