Compendium artis nauticæ Being the daily practice of the whole art of navigation; whereby all the problems of navigation and astronomy practicable at sea, are easily, expeditiously and exactly performed, only by tabular inspection: without The Operation of Plain and Spherical Trigonometry; each Problem being amply explained, and rendered intelligible to the meanest Capacity; so as to enable them to keep an Account of the Ships Way, both by Plain and Mercator's-Sailing: All being wholly New, and exactly agreeing with the nicest Calculation, and may readily be applied to most Parts of Practical Mathematicks. By John Collier, Formerly Teacher of the Mathematicks to the Gentlemen Voluntiers in the Royal Navy
