    Re: A new book about the sextant -- how to order from the US
    From: Paul Werner
    Date: 2014 Mar 5, 03:58 -0800

    I asked for author and title.
    I now have found out and ordered one.
    David Barrie; Sextant: A Voyage Guided by the Stars and the Men Who Mapped the World's Oceans.

    Some well-known references.
    I have two "sextant books" earlier:
    Bruce Bauer; The SEXTANT HANDBOOK.
    W.J. Morris; The NAUTICAL SEXTANT

    There is a short story on the www:
    Peter Ifland; The History of the Sextant.
    I have not read his book:
    Taking the Stars: Celestial Navigation from Argonauts to Astronauts.

    Most textbooks on CN have a sextant chapter sometimes with a short historical introduction.
