    See page 160 of Navigation By George Leonard Hosmer on google books.
    AQUINO'S METHOD This method consists in treating the Sumner lines in the same 
    manner as described under St Hilaire's method but using spherical traverse 
    tables to shorten the process The necessary tables will be found in Hydr 
    Office publ  No 2oo In order to make the method clear we will work the 
    problem stated on pp 145 149 and 151 Since it makes no difference in the 
    final result whether we use the DR position for plotting the line or some 
    other assumed position we will select a point in such a position that much 
    interpolation in the tables will be avoided ...
    You can get a reprint of Aquino's tables from abebooks.com for about $18 (i 
    snapped up a used copy for even less on ebay a while ago):
