    Re: Lost book, "Line of Position Navigation"

    I have the paperback edition, which has a nautical chart that is grey
    on top and bottom and normal colored in the middle.  The back is grey
    on the bottom, and normal colored over the rest, but most of the back
    is taken up with a blurb, written on an almost opaque black.  There are
    small photos of two vernier-micrometer sextants on the back toward the
    bottom and a large steam-powered 3-decker flying a French flag on the
    front toward the bottom.
