4Title:  The mariner's magazine; or, Sturmy's mathematical and practical arts: Containing, the description and use of the scale of scales; it being a mathematical ruler, that resolves most mathematical conclusions: and likewise the making and use of the crostaff, quadrant, and the quadrat, nocturnals, and other most useful instruments for all artists and navigators. The art of navigation, resolved geometrically, instrumentally, and by calculation, and by that late excellent invention of logarithms, in the three principal kinds of sailing; with new tables of the longitude and latitude of the most eminent places round the world, from the meridian of the lizard: and new exact tables of the sun's declination, newly calculated; and of the longitude and latitude, declination and right ascension of some eminent fixed stars. Together with a discourse of the practick part of navigation, in working a ship in all weathers and conditions at sea. A new way of surveying of land, by the mariners azimuth or amplitude compass; very easie and delightful to all sorts of navigators, mariners, or others. The art of gauging all sorts of vessels; and the measuring of timber, glass, board, stone, walls, cielings, and tylings. The art of gunnery ... also, artificial fire-works for sea and land service, as also for recreation and delight, with figures. Astronomy, geometrical, instrumental, and by calculation. The art of dialling by a gnomonical scale, and likewise by calculation ... Whereunto is annexed, an abridgment of the penalties and forfeitures, by acts of parliaments appointed, relating to the customs and navigation. Also, a compendium of fortification, both geometrically and instrumentally
