Naval War College Review

Volume 27, Number 6 (1974) November-December

The cover of this issue of the Review is a copy of an engraved plate from L'art des Armées Navales, ou Traité des Évolutions Navales (Lyons, 1727) by Paul Hoste, 1652-1700, French Jesuit and professor of mathematics at the Royal Naval College, Toulon. The work, which first appeared in 1697, is the earliest known study on naval tactics. A 1727 second edition containing additions and corrections is included in the Navy War College Library's Rare Book Collection.
