NAUTICAL ALMANAC FIGURES i
Great Care Exercised In Preparing
Tables for the Guidance of
the Sailor
1It may be safely said that no onp
outside the publishing office baa read
the entire Nautical Almanac from
beginning to end but each figure of
the printed almanac Is in the office
examined twice and read three times
The total number of figures exceeds
a million but great as the number Is
iIt is trifling compared with the num
her of calcub
lations as the almanac figures repre
sent bare results only The moon
for instance requires for its calcula
Hall more than a million and a half
of figures and similarly with other
branches of the work such as the sun
Ithe planet etc Contrary to the gen
eral opinion practically every figure
iIn the book is fresh from year to year
The tables from which nearly ali
the work is calculated have been trig
inally constructed from the labors of
the astronomical observer and to a
IIthe
larger extent from the observations of
the sun moon and planes made at
1 the Royal observatory Greenwich Tel
escopes and other astronomical appll i
