    Bowditch

    Bowditch for Celestial Navigation.
    
    Get an older copy of Bowditch. I have a copy of Vol I 1977
    and Vol II 1975. The new edition of Bowditch, I believe 1995,
    has a lot of the celestial stuff stripped out.
    
    In NO way pay over about maybe $15.00 a volume. $125 is outrageous.
    
    I also saw a 1966 one volume edition of Bowditch at the Book
    Baron in Fullerton for $95.00. I went down the road to
    a little store called The Book Fair  in the next town over
    and got the exact same book for $15.00!
    
    The Book Baron in Anaheim has a lot of Duttons circa 1950s
    for about $7.00 to $10.00. Not a bad book either.
    
    Bowdich from about 1938 on is a very common book I have seen
    it in several used book stores for $10.00 to $25.00
