    Nautical almanac information needed
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2009 Aug 1, 23:55 +0100

    I need some information from the Nautical Almanac for 1772. Although a full
    view is promised on Google books, in fact 8 pages, from [113] to [120]
    inclusive, are missing. Those missing pages, of course, contain the very
    data that I'm searching for, which is as follows-
    1772 October 4, 6h and 9h, (which will be 6pm and 9pm) lunar distances, both
    East and West of the Moon.
    What I'm after is the actual numerical information predicted in that
    Almanac, rather than a modern back-prediction.
    If anyone on the list has easy access to a copy of that almanac, those
    numbers would be useful. But otherwise, it will call for a visit to the
    Bodleian Library in Oxford: though that isn't a big deal, so I'm not asking
    any listmember to go to any great lengths on my account.
