    To be more complete, it is the 2102A version in the 1938 Bowditch.  The 1958 Bowditch has the 2102D.  The 1958 Bowditch also reminded me that the red meridian angle-declination template was not included with the 2102C.  Also the blue latitude templates started at the horizon with the 2102D but at 10º altitude with the 2102C.  Apparently there were some copies of the 2102C that showed the stars that were listed in the almanacs prior to 1953.  My oldest almanacs are from the early 1960s, so someone else (Frank?) will have to tell us which stars are referred to.  I also have not yet found a "history"of the 2102 series explaining the changes; but the 1958 Bowditch says, "Successive models reflect various modifications to meet changing conditions and requirements."

    To be complete, it is not mentioned in the fifth (1934) edition. It is also shown in the 1938 edition of Bowditch.

    For the record, The 2102-D is also referred to in paragraph 2002 of the 13th (1978) edition.  I wonder which chapter they dropped from the 12th.

    BTW, are you aware that Mack Maloney passed away earlier this year?  He certainly was not involved with Dutton's in 1942, but did Dutton's from I don't know when and Chapman's since 1965.

    Well, not so fast. It is referred to in paragraph 2102 of the twelvth edition of Dutton's but is also shown in paragraph 1811 of the seventh, much earlier (1942), edition.  This refers to H.O. 2102-C and the much larger 2102-A. It has since been  moved and is in paragraph 2002 of the fourteenth edition.

    Fred,
    The only strange number association that I could find regarding the 2102 star finder is that it is first refered to in Duttons in the second paragraph of chapter 21. See attached page. Quite a coincidence.

    Bill,
    
    I was aware it was a publication number.  But I've read posts on this list 
    intimate that the choice of digits had some meaning.
