There is a book referenced on a few websites that I haven't come close to finding. I've seen it called a few things. I can't find a title that I can reliably search for.

Can you get the ISBN or the author?

It's probably an exclusively Chinese publication, local at that, which is why there are various titles in english.

If you could share the links you have i can try to dig more, so far i have no luck neither.

In case this book has not already been included:

The Elements and Practice of Rigging and Seamanship, David Steel, 1794

http://www.hnsa.org/resources/manuals-documents/age-of-sail/the-elements-and-practice-of-rigging-and-seamanship/

Right in our period, it includes a dictionary of naval terms  as well as a documentation of fleet movement.
