Navigation rectified: or, The common chart proved to be the onely true chart

Publication Date1687
RemainderWith an answer to a question given by some navigatours in the practical part of navigation, with an addenda upon the same question, proving Mercator's practical rules in navigation to be notoriously false: with several observations proving longitude cannot be found by observation from the stars or from the planets, unless it be when the sun or moon are eclipsed in the equinoctial. To which are added several observations, proving the globe of the earth to be the centre of the heavens. As likewise an answer to two propositions of Mr. Flamsteed: with a letter from a friend, concerning his behaviour in this affair. By Peter Blackborow
