    Bear in mind that this is only one volume in the Seaport's digitized collection. If you go to the index here:
    you will find an amazing collection of ship's logbooks, journals, and other records of 19th century maritime history (primarily 19th). Norie's Epitome of Navigation is there. There is also a complete Nautical Almanac from 1804. You could spend years exploring just this small collection of digitized volumes. Apart from the Internet-accessible collection, the G.W. Blunt White's physical collections are also open to the public at no charge. You can explore one of the most complete collections of Bowditch's New American Practical Navigator and many other resources relevant to the history of navigation, and Mystic is a cute little New England town worth a trip all on its own.

    Yes, I have frequently found it down in the past couple of weeks. They FINALLY launched a new web site a few weeks ago (the old one was a real mess). I assume the occasional crashes will diminish in frequency in the coming months.
