    archive.org is a wonderful resource. Most of the historic navigation texts discussed on this List are available there for free download, as well as many more. I spend many an evening browsing on it. Just type "Navigation" in the subject line and be sure you have clicked on "Texts". Enjoy.

    George's comment about the availability of low-price copies of "The Marine Chronometer" by Rupert Gould as on-demand reprints got me thinking... They're getting their originals from somewhere, right? And sure enough, it's available at archive.org in various formats. I'm also linking a copy here (the B/W pdf version, 22 MB). Since the google bots will soon come along and digest its contents, OCR-ing as they go, that should help bring more people to NavList interested in chronometer history and navigation history.
