De l'invention de la boussole nautique.
Sole edition: History of the nautical compass, in which the author attempts to assign credit for the invention of that device not to ancient Chinese or Arabic minds but rather to marine pilot Flavio Gioia d'Amalfi, with much accompanying praise of the "supériorité maritime" of the medieval Italians. Scarce: OCLC, RLIN, and NUC-Pre1956 locate only six U.S. holdings.
