"This Mariners magazine is a compendium of useful information and is essentially a course in practical mathematics. It was designed to give practical advice to seamen (and others). It did not provide the latest scientific thinking and limited itself to only the information to perform a given function... [The] work is composed of several books on the topics of navigation, instruments, surveying, gauging, astronomy, dialing, gunnery, fireworks, fortification and a summary of penalties applied for smuggling" (Tomash & Williams).

Four of the plates have a number of images, which if cut out, would combine to provide volvelles (compare with the second edition of this work, lot 625, where this has been done for three of the plates).
