Catalogue Note

This is the issue with the title of The mariners plain scale new plain'd placed before that of Navigation by the mariners plain scale new plain'd, rather than before the second part of the work. The work therefore can appear under either title (see Macclesfield sale in these rooms, 30 October 2007, lot 3424).
