The present edition is the 144th annual publication of Brown's Nautical Almanac and, as in former years, unremitting care and attention have been given to its preparation.

The Greenwich Hour Angle tabulations and the arrangement of the Ephemeris are in line with the layout of the British and American Nautical Almanacs. Attention is directed to the Table for the correction of Altitudes and Conversion purposes. These are given in the Preliminary Section, pages 6 to 10, for quick and easy reference.

The Company was established in a small way about 1850 as a retail stationery business, with initial premises on the south side of the River Clyde in Glasgow, next to the Railway terminus in Bridge Street. Later came moves to Drury Street, then to York Street and about the year 1908 to 52 Darnley Street, before a final one to the present premises at 4/10 Darnley Street, in December 1981.

The scope of the Company's publications was broadly increased so that they now covered every phase of sea life. Although too numerous to mention here, publications covered many aspects of nautical knowledge, which, by then had become far more of an exact science. The publishing activities of the company were not, however, limited to nautical affairs. When the Boy Scout and Girl Guide movements started, the Company saw further scope for its activities and became connected with both Associations. Activities have since further expanded into the fields of Scottish literature and plays. The list of the latter is extensive and, judging by their successes in play festivals, has been made up with discrimination. Brown, Son and Ferguson are the leading play publishers in Scotland, with over 200 one act and 100 full length plays always in print.
