Description on chart: This gnomonic chart is not for use as a general sailing chart, but as a simple means of finding the course and distance at anytime in great circle sailing. A straight line drawn between any two points on this chart represents a portion of a great circle, and is, therefore, the shortest possible track-line between them.

Stamped in the lower left noting updates to Feb 28, 1913.
