    thanks, Jackson.  I have a 1962 edition and treasure it.  It's one of those things I will pass on to my son.  Best regards,  Sam Lyness

    This is a very rare book.  I seem to remember reading somewhere, perhaps here on NavList, that even the Library of Congress did not have a Bowditch first edition.
