    Re: Background to Discovery: Pacific Exploration from Dampier to Cook

    George, you wrote:
    
    "What is especially interesting, in the chapter which Andres recommended, is
    
    Howse's analysis of the going of the various timepieces taken on Cook's 2nd 
    and 3rd voyages, which shows us the extent to which they required correction
    
    from astronomical observations. I haven't seen that study published 
    elsewhere."
    
    There is an article by Derek Howse on Cook's chronometers:
    
    Captain Cook's Marine Timekeepers.
    Antiquarian Horology, Vol.  6 (1969), 190 - 205, 276 - 280.
    
    I haven't seen it, but it may contain more information of this kind.
