    Re: Bowditch editions?

    From the prefaces, it appears that the 1962 has significant changes from the
    1958, but the 1966 is only slightly different from the 1962. Either the 1962
    or 1966 make a nice one-volume reference. The two-volume sets (1977v1/1975v2
    or 1984v1/1981v2) are even more complete, but be careful if buying over the
    net: these editions were indifferently printed and bound. All the 1960's
    editions I've seen have been sturdily made, and the star charts with
    transparent overlays for the constellation and guide lines are a delight.

    Subject: Bowditch editions?
    The 1966 Bowditch I had ordered got lost in the mail so I'm looking again.
    Any opinions on how the "1962 corrected" edition with a navy cover compares?
    I only plan to buy one, as a general reference book.
