    T. Reqs on ebay

    There is a copy of the "Tables Requisite to be used with the Nautical
    Ephemeris, For Finding The Latitude and Longitude At Sea", (T.Reqs, for
    short) from 1802 up for auction on ebay. The auction number is 160117499123.
    A scanned copy of this volume is available on googlebooks so if you're
    interested for the information content only, this auction won't be relevant.
    But if you like owning old navigation books, this is a nice one, and it's
    very rare. I already have a copy and won't be bidding. The auction is not
    titled well, so I thought I would point it out to the group.
    The "Tables Requisite" were a companion volume to the annually published
    Nautical Almanac. They contained the non-ephemeral data including tables for
    dip, refraction, etc., as well as trig tables, and appendices detailing how
    to solve various problems in navigation, including clearing lunar distances.
    Most of the navigation manuals in this period like Moore, Bowditch, and
    Norie used the Tables Requisite as a starting point.
