    Searching secondhand books
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 1999 May 28, 1:21 AM

    For some time, I've been looking out for the following secondhand nautical
    books, without success. With the possible exception of Seidelmann, all are
    presumably now out-of-print.
                            ------------------
    
    Astronomical.
    
    Charles H. Cotter, "A History of Nautical Astronomy", American Elsevier
    Publishing Company, Inc., 52 Vanderbilt Avenue, New York, New York,
    10017. 1968.
    
    J. Meeus, Astronomical Algorithms, Willmann-Bell, about 1991.
    
    Nautical Almanac, any year prior to 1905 or so (when the tables of Lunar
    Distances were dropped).
    
    P. Kenneth Seidelmann, "Explanatory
    Supplement to the Astronomical Almanac", ISBN 0-935702-68-7.
    
    
    Nautical.(fiction)
    
    C.S.Forester, "Hornblower and the Crisis", a book referred to in Forester's
    "Hornblower Companion", but which I have never come across. Is it an
    alternative title, perhaps for an American edition? Does it exist at all?.
                                    __________
    
            Can anyone recommend a secondhand bookseller who specialises in
    astronomy or nautical astronomy? I'm based in the UK, but am prepared to
    look further afield?
