THE MOST FAMOUS ENGLISH navigational text of the late 18th century. Moore's 'The Practical Navigator' was the most popular navigational text of the late 18th century and a standard work on maritime practice throughout the English speaking world. Nathaniel Bowditch, a native of Salem, Massachusetts, would correct and improve Moore work for American publisher Edmund M. Blunt. Bowditch would later publish his own highly important NEW AMERICAN PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR, based firmly on Moore's example. That work is now considered the greatest work in the history of navigation. Item #30938

The greatly enlarged and improved sixteenth edition. With a fine engraved portrait of the author as frontispiece, a large fold-out engraved planisphere of the stars, 10 other copper-engraved plates, 29 tables, and countless diagrams and illustrations within the text. Tall 8vo, very handsomely bound in full calf to period style, the spines with bands ruled in gilt. xvi, 361, tables, 6 ads, pp. A bright and fresh copy of this scarce book, the text still quite clean and well preserved for a copy of a book intended to be used at sea, just a touch of general mellowing to the paper and old and mild evidence of moisture to a small portion of the first few leaves, the binding is in very fine condition.
