    Re: Baffled by Baffin

    I wrote earlier-
    Has Tony been reading "The voyages of William Baffin, 1612 - 1622", by
    Clements R Markham, published by the Hakluyt Society in 1880 or 81? To my
    frustration, and surprise, that volume isn't on the shelves of the Bod.
    Cotter tells us of Baffin's account of observations for finding refraction,
    off Spitzbergen in 1614, in "Purchas, his Pilgrims". Or has there been a
    more recent publication of Baffin? Whichever, if Tony can find a way to scan
    or copy those pages, relevant to Baffin's astronomical observations, I for
    one would be delighted.
    Now, by searching somewhat more diligently in their convoluted catalogue, I
    have located a copy of Baffin's voyages in the Bod., so would like to
    withdraw that request, as far as I am concerned.
