    As far as Navigation-L goes any subject on non-electronic navigation is
    acceptable. Even a little GPS is OK.
    Big problem is that the better historical navigation books are OUT-OF-PRINT.
    Here are my some of my favorites:
            The Haven Finding Art, E.G.R. Taylor, Abelard-Schuman Limited, New York,
            1957. Library of Congress Card No. 57-5099.
            A History of Nautical Astronomy, Charles H. Cotter, Hollis & Carter Ltd.
            1968, London, ISBN 370-00460-4.
            Any pre-1995, 2 vol. edition of Bowditch, Pub. NO. 9.
            The Ancient Mariners, Lionel Casson, Macmillan Co., 1959, Library of Cogress
            Card No. 58-12437
            We The Navigators, David Lewis, The University of Hawaii, 1972,
            ISBN 0-8248-0229-2.
            The Last Navigator, Stephen D. Thomas, Henry Holt & Co., 1987,
            ISBN 0-8050-0096-8.
