Since J W Norie published the first edition of this famous set of mathematical tables in 1803, the book has become - and remained - a bestseller. Despite developments in electronic navigation it remains an essential requirement for anyone learning and practising astro-navigation. Since the last update in 2007, the editor, George Blance, has made many changes - new tables have been included and obsolete ones deleted to conform with changing techniques of navigation, with the aim of improving the accuracy of the calculated position and reducing the tedium of the calculation. The section Seaports of the World has again been extensively updated and restructured with several hundred additional ports. The ports are listed geographically and also indexed alphabetically to aid identification. 2018 edition.

1808. Parted from his new bride, Captain Sir Thomas Kydd is called away to join the Northern Expedition to Sweden, now Britain's only ally in the Baltic. Following the sudden declaration of war by Russia and with the consequent threat of the czar's great fleet in St Petersburg, the expedition must defend Britain's dearly-won freedom in those waters. However Kydd finds his popular fame as a frigate captain is a poisoned chalice; in the face of jealousy and envy from his fellow captains, the distrust of the commander-in-chief and the betrayal of friendship by a former brother-in-arms now made his subordinate, can he redeem his reputation? In an entirely hostile sea Tyger ranges from the frozen north to the deadly confines of the Danish Sound - and plays a pivotal role in the situation ensuing after the czar's sudden attack on Finland. This climaxes in the first clash of fleets between Great Britain and Russia in history. To the victor will be the prize of the Baltic! ****************** PRAISE FOR JULIAN STOCKWIN'S THOMAS KYDD SERIES 'Paints a vivid picture of life aboard the mighty ship-of-the-line' Daily Express 'This heady adventure blends fact and fiction in rich, authoritative detail' Nautical Magazine on VICTORY 'Fans of fast-paced adventure will get their fill with this book' Historical Naval Society on THE ADMIRAL'S DAUGHTER
