    Re: New book on Maskelyne

    Thanks for the heads-up.  Amazon is now accepting pre-orders for this book, which will be released in the U.S. on February 1.

    Santa brought me a good new book on Maskelyne, astronomer royal, rather maligned as villain in Sobel's book.

    This one by the Royal Greenwich museum, edited by Rebekah Higgitt. Offical price £25, but I think Santa got mine cheap off Amazon.

    Much more balanced view of the Harrison clock versus lunar debate and Maskelyne's role in all that.

    Recommended for lunatics everywhere.
