    Re: Coverage of lunars in Bowditch

    Yves Arrouye asks:
    
    What is a good source of old Bowdicth editions in the US? On eBay at this
    time the oldest I see is 1917.
    
    The most convenient source is an Internet book search. My favorite is
    www.abebooks.com. A search using "Nathaniel Bowditch" produced over 200
    hits. Pre WWI editions are obviously hard to find but a nice collection of
    WWI to WWII editions can still be assembled for a modest investment without
    ever leaving home! Makes me appreciate my modest little collection of
    Bowditch all the more.
