    More 19th century Bowditches available online

    A few more editions have turned up in the past few months. The majority of the various editions of Bowditch's Navigator from the 19th and early 20th centuries are now available online. Here's the list I've been maintaining, updated:

    It's a remarkable thing. I remember in 2002 seeing an advertisement for a digitized version of Bowditch, one from the 1850s if memory serves. And if I remember right, it was offered for sale by Starpath digitized from a copy originally provided by Bruce Stark. It cost about $50 on CD. Now there are over 30 different editions available for download at any time for the cost of a high-speed Internet connection.
