    Re: 1966 Bowditch: One volume or two?
    From: Glendon

    I have a 1977 edition, two volumes, first volume 1386 pages listed as 1977
    edition, second volume (tables) 716pages...and listed as 1975 edition. As
    far as I can tell, these are a companion set, with the 1975 Volume II
    serving several editions of Volume I. The preface to my 1977 Volume I talks
    about "extensive revisions" and makes no mention of being a reprint from
    1966.
    
    With reference to Robert Eno's comment about the 1966 edition being perhaps
    the finest produced (defined in terms of extensive treatment of
    non-electronic navigation, I presume).....I had always assumed that the two
    volume sets of the late 60's through to the 80's were the most expansive. I
    would be interested in Robert's comments about why he has singled the 1966
    edition out.

    But from what you say, 1977 was split into two volumes so it wouldn't be a
    straight reprint of a single volume 1966 edition, would it?
