Romme (1744-1805) held a position as royal professor of mathematics and navigation at the marine academy at rochefort. He wrote many works on navigation, cartography, and marine science. This book is one of the most complete and detailed early acounts of aceanic currents and tidal patterns, and gives an excellent description of the distribution of the winds over the globe. Romme provided full information on the yearly weather patterns and tides of all the coastal areas of continents, save Antarctica, and other large land masses.
