Navigation etc.

According to Watt & Forbes's biography of Holbrooke, this work has 16 pieces, the last (The Squook) appears to be missing from Goodwin & Tabb's 1923 publication of the score. They are also the source of the alternative title. Furthermore, they list this work as Op.89, not Op.89a as listed elsewhere, without referring to an orchestral version, listed elsewhere as Op.89b. In fact, they list Op.89b as Phryne and Cyrene for clarinet and piano, listed elsewhere as Cyrene, Op.88a.
