Latitude by Ex-Meridian Altitude


    THE author of this brochure, with a tinge of satire, seems to apologise for its containing nothing about the already exhaustively developed Sumner method. In doing this he alludes to “the too just Aristides.” This reminds us of a saying of that practical philosopher, that “the best way to appear just is to be so.” The proverb may teach us that the way to obtain dependable results is to have a firm grasp of principles, that the most reliable navigator is one who understands the theory of his problems.

    The “Ex-Meridian” treated as a Problem in Dynamics, &c.

    By H. B. Goodwin. (London: George Philip and Son, 1894.)
