I purchased this to learn celestial navigation, along with a second-hand copy of the thirteenth edition (edited by Elbert Maloney). While the material appears largely similar, I have found several errors in the 15th edition that are not in the earlier edition, and was unable to find online any form of errata, or notification of corrections in later printings.

For example: Fig. 2513, illustrating the use of "Double second difference and correction", the example called out , which should be printed with a trailing dot (as described in the text) does not, in fact, have the dot, which is quite confusing for someone looking. The corresponding figure (#2404e) in the 13th edition clearly has the dot.

Another example: Section 2103 has an example for calculating the SHA of Venus. This example is wrong. Again contrast with the corresponding example (#2004) in the 13th edition, which is different (and correct).

Rather disappointing that the new edition, rather than correcting previous errors, introduces rather blatant new ones.
Dutton's Nautical Navigation, 15th Edition ...Received in a timely fashion and was as described, just like new. Helped to review navigation terms used before GPS was finalized. Broke out my sextant and tried a few observations. Like riding a bicycle.. you may be rusty but it comes back quickly. Excellent book.
I purchased this book for a maritime class I'm taking; Coastal Piloting. This is a really great book for anyone looking to start with the basics of learning maritime and seamanship. I'm pretty sure I'll keep this book for a long, long time... probably until I pass it down to someone else.
Bought used and received a book that looked brand new. A must have for the professional mariner and excellent info for anyone interested in maritime navigation. Great study aid for MMC test prep as well.
This book is 100% on the button; soul lives up to its stellar reputation. I heartily recommend it for all navigators.

Honestly, a great book for any navigator. Great for learning the basics as well as refreshing on the principles. I would definitely say, this book better be in your library somewhere if you plan to sail. Additionally, the seller was good, no problems with the transaction and the shipping was just fine as well, timely one might say.
I derived 5-star quality out of the book in spite of an error in a couple of examples, which were easily found and corrected. It is well worth the purchase.
What can I say easy to to read easy to understand no extra story's right to the point clean crisp reading organized logically for anyone wanting to learn navigation from the beginning dead reckoning to navigating by the stars
Best money spent on this subject
