    Just a reminder, the complete Nautical Almanac for the year 1804 is online on the Mystic Seaport Library web site. The address for the complete collection of digitized documents is

    If you scroll down to "imprints", you will find the 1804 almanac about two-thirds of the way down the list.

    And take a look just below the almanac listing... There's a complete copy of Norie's Epitome of Navigation there, too. It's the 1828 edition. If you've never browsed a "Norie" before, it's a lot like a "Bowditch", and some would say better. There's plenty of juicy stuff for the loony lunarians especially but also anyone else interested in 19th century navigation methods.
