    The 211 tables are no longer published as a separate book, but are included
    as an appendix in several larger works, including Bowditch. Bowditch has
    a basic explaination of how to use the tables. Of the books now in print,
    George Mixter's _Primier of Navigation_ has a whole chapter on the tables
    and a good (for beginners) workform that you can copy. Old editions of
    Mixter from the 1930's or 1970's are common in used bookshops near the sea
    and are equally good for this.
    There are also compact derivatives of the 211 available, notably Bayless
    and Pepperday's S-tables.
