If you don’t need a hard copy you can download a pdf of the Petzold (not: Petzgold) book here: http://www.flight-computer.de. And there is another new book on flight computers: Piel, Alexander, Dead Reckoning Computers for Air Navigation -History – design – inventors, Paperback A5; 338 pages; 157 Ill.., ISBN 9783753445748, Books on Demand; price: 25,99€ (I don’t know how much shipping would cost).
And if you would like to play around with old calculators and are looking for formulae, try these:
Shufeldt, The Calculator Afloat, Annapolis 1980,
Mills, Positional Astronomy and Astro-Navigation Made Easy, Kingsditch 1978,
Rogoff, Calculator Navigation, New York 1979 (few formulae, but programs for RPN calculators),
Noer, Navigator’s Pocket Calculator Handbook, Centreville, MD (Cornell Maritime Press), s.d..
