    The 1962 edition of Bowditch (including the 1966
    reprint) does not mention Pub 229 at all, but gives
    extensive coverage of Pub 214. When I studied
    Navigation in about 1967 (Navy ROTC), we were taught
    Pub 214. My oldest volume of Pub 229 is dated 1970. I
    did a search of abebooks.com and found 12 copies dated
    1970, and zero copies with an earlier publication
    date. I vote for 1970 as the date of first publication
    for Pub 229.
