Traité Théorique et Pratique de la Régulation et de la Compensation des Compas

    Abstract

    THIS new treatise on the compass contains an admirable account of the most recent work done on the subject, and a very full and practical explanation of the objects of compass compensation and the methods adopted to secure it. It is founded on the author's translation, now twelve years old, of Smith and Evans' Admiralty Manual—made for the benefit of the French marine. That epoch-making book is however still the basis or substratum of Lieut. Collet's new work.

    Traité Théorique et Pratique de la Régulation et de la Compensation des Compas.

    Par A. Collet Lieutenant de Vaisseau, Répétiteur à l'École Polytechnique. Ouvrage publié avec l'Autorisation de M. le Ministre de la Marine. (Paris: Challamel Ainé, 1882.)
