    Actually, there's something to be said for locating earlier editions
    of Bowditch for ehanced tables.  The two volume sets from the 60's and
    70's have tables not seen in later "penny pinching" editions.
    Obviously, some material is dated and I would not use these editions
    as primary sources but they're worth look for.
