    Lunar Distance
    From: Jim Herz
    Date: 1997 Jun 11, 09:26 EDT

    I recently received a copy of "The Quest for Longitude"  edited by William
    J.H. Andrewes. It is published by the " Collection of Historical Scientific
    Instruments, Harvard University, Cambridge MA."  This book is available at
    most Barnes and Noble outlets.
    This comprehensive work includes the Lunar Distance Method as well as several
    earlier methods.  It also includes a detailed account of John Harrisons work
    in developing the chronometer.
    Another interesting book is Dava Sobels "Longitude".
