Excerpt from Trigonometry, Surveying and Navigation<br><br>N preparing this work the aim has been to furnish just so much of Trigonometry as is actually taught in our best schools and colleges. Consequently, development of functions in series and all other investigations that are important only for the special student have been omitted. The principles have been unfolded with the utmost brevity consistent with simplicity and clearness, and inter esting problems have been selected with a view to awaken a real love for the study. Much time and labor have been spent in devis ing the simplest proofs for the propositions, and in exhibiting the best methods of arranging the logarithmic work.<br><br>The object of the work on Surveying and Navigation is to pre sent these subjects in a clear and intelligible way, according to the best methods in actual use; and also to present them in so small a compass that students in general may find the time to acquire a competent knowledge of these very interesting and important studies.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
