    German Navigation Books
    From: Gordon Talge

    Here is one I could kick myself for.
    Back in the 1970's I was browsing around at "Acres of Books" in
    Long Beach.  I came across a book on Celestial Navigation in
    German copyrighted around 1943.  It had belonged to a German Naval
    Officer. Had his signature, rank, his ship everything. In the
    front cover it had a circular stamp inside was the Nazi eagle holding
    a wreath with a swatika.  The Price was $5.00.  I had the $5.00, but
    I didn't read German and thought the book would be of little value
    learning navigation.  Went home, thought about it, came back
    the next day.  It was gone!!
    Best deal, though. I did buy a whole set ( minus Lat 30-35 ) of H.O. 214
    for $40.00 a year or so ago.  I already had the missing volume so now
    I had a complete set.
