    I much prefer the interface from the society itself, which you pointed out, George. The interface for Gallica has "quirky" behavior, maybe even buggy.
     
    Another important navigational periodical that you'll find via Gallica is the French "Maritime Review". Look for an article by E. Guyou entitled (in French) "The Method of Lunar Distances: Present, Past, and Future" from 1902.
