Description

Excerpt from An Elementary Treatise on the Application of Trigonometry: To Orthographic and Stereographic Projection, Dialling, Mensuration of Heights and Distances, Navigation, Nautical Astronomy, Surveying and Levelling; Together With Logarithmic and Other Tables Designed for the Use of the Students of the University at Cam The branches of mathematics comprehended in this volume have usually made a part of the course of instruction at the public seminaries of the United States. But the best treatises upon these subjects are too extended, and of too practical a nature, to be used as a text-book. What is here offered is intended to furnish only those general principles and leading methods, which afford a useful exercise to the learner, and which may be considered as belonging to the pursuit of liberal studies. The works principally used in preparing this treatise are Cag-noli and Bonnycastle's Trigonometry, Delambre's Astronomy, Bezout's Navigation, Puissant and Malortie's Topography. The tables, except those of meridional parts and astronomical refractions, are from the stereotype plates of Bowditch's Practical Navigator, the correctness of which is too well known to need any recommendation. An introductory treatise on the Differential and Integral Calculus, nearly ready for the press, will complete this course of mathematics. It is proposed also soon to commence publishing a work on Natural Philosophy, adapted to the same class of students.
