• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

John Harrison and the Quest for Longitude Jonathan Betts

This is said to have been published in February, 2020, but I wondered if it was a re-hash of Bett's earlier work on Harrison.
Does anyone know ?
Don't want to get it and find that I essentially have it already.
Thanks,

Ralph.

He was still working on another book when I spoke to him last November, and he was doing that earlier that year too.It wasn't about Harrison. I think he has found himself rather busy since he retired!

I tried to purchase a copy and found that it had been withdrawn from publication.

You do not get the notice until they process your order. I tried a UK seller and they had their listing marked "not available."

I purchased copy from Amazon (France) a couple of days ago. The UK site lists availability from 31 August.

I thought they were by David Penney but they are by a nwe illustrator whoc has done a lovely job with a single quibble so far.

The book has been withdrawn by the Museum because of an infringement of copyright.

I am closing this thread to further comment as it is against NAWCC policy to involve the NAWCC and its members in on-going legal matters. Thank you for your understanding in this.
