    I have volumes 1 through 6, all of different publication dates. In the
    1940 volume there are the altitude correction tables for sun  and stars
    and for the moon, which includes parallax in altitude, and the table for
    dip. The page facing this has the bubble sextant correction tables  for
    sun and stars and the table for the  moon including P in A.
    My other volumes dated 1952, 1958, 1962, 1967, and 1970 all have the
    Speed, Time and Distance tables inside the cover and on the facing page.
