This would be a great book for Kindle. No one will re-print it, but it's the definitive work on it's subject "The (early) History of Navigation" so it should be more readily available. I got a good copy for £30 but if everyone buys one then it will drift off into "collectors" land (price of everything and value of nothing).Order from the Library first (they can buy it) and buy one or ask for it to be "kindled" if you are heavily into the subject.

Techniques of navigation 30 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Unknown Binding
E.G.R. Taylor writes as a professional geographer with an interest in techniques of marine navigation. The 'Haven finding Art...' is beautifully organised and thoughtfully illustrated. Taylor's prose is clear and economical; her examples and quotations are apt and sure to fascinate. Borne along by the effortless flow of her story, the reader can easily forget that along with the tale, a wide range of complex and technical information is also being conveyed. Taylor covers the eastern as well as the western seas, and treats of such matters as the evolution of maritime instruments and of the maritime-chart. A scholarly, insightful and memorable work. (The revised and expanded edition was published in 1971.)
