21st Century Atlas of the Moon
      #6114884 - 10/03/13 10:42 AM

I finally decided to buy this book but I'm having trouble finding one for sale. Is it sold out? I know there where some typos/error in the first edition, will there be a second edition? If so when. A pointer to a sales point would be appreciated.

If you buy directly from Charles Wood, you could ask him to autograph it for you. He did sign a lot of the early copies that went out!!!Good Luck...it's an awesome book!!!

According to this order page for the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon the 2nd printing began in June 2013. At least I hope that is the case, since I ordered one a few days ago.

peace & clear skies,

I was thinking June 2013 was about the time of the initial release. Please post about the known errors being corrected in the version you receive.

Hi Al,

I think the original release was Nov/Dec 2012. Check out this LPOD forum thread, New Atlas!! and this post from Nov. 18, 2012, NO LONGER SECRET. When my atlas comes in I can compare it to the errata sheet that is posted on LPOD.

peace & clear skies,

How time flies! OK, so June 2013 is likely the 2nd printing. I'll wait for your feedback.

Thanks
Al

Checking the LPOD webpage for the 21st Century Atlas of the Moon, there is no mention of a 2nd printing.

From that page :

Order Now
The Atlas is now being distributed - and soon will be reprinted by - West Virginia University Press. The Chicago Distribution Center handles the actual sales. You can order in any of 5 ways:

I took the 'reprinted' to mean a 2nd edition.

Ok, thanks for the info. My fault.

I missed the line "and soon will be reprinted by - West Virginia University Press."

Most use first in first out, to prevent/reduce/avoid obsolescence. Last in first out would guarantee obsolescence, in a relatively short time.

<red face on>

I'm wrong, sorry guys. My memory is terrible (suffered stoke last year). Here is MY question to Mr. Wood in July 2013. You can read it here in a forum post, New Edition? so I guess I ordered a first edition with errors. Oh well...

The errors are so minor, it isn't worth worrying about...

I bought my copy 3 weeks ago and the book I received has a copyright of 2012 with no indication that it is a second printing. As Rick stated, I have only seen minor errors.

It is a beautiful atlas that is a great addition to my collection, and has already proved to be quite useful at the eyepiece!

If you purchase the book directly from Charles Wood, he'll sign it for you if you make a request.

I was curious so I sent Charles Wood an email. The short version of Charles's answer is that the books being sold today are still identical to those that were sold when it was first released (see Richard's post above). Also, he wasn't sure if the typos in the first printing would be corrected in a future version because of the expense of doing so (note that he didn't rule it out, he said that he wasn't sure). I'm tempted to buy a copy of this book, I'm currently weighing it up against other potential uses for my capped toy fund.
