I am shocked and upset over finding several maps missing from my H-B Astroatlas.   I bought it used on Cloudy Nights Classifieds about a year ago.

Just tonight (1-13-2018) I discovered maps C80 thru C87 are missing.  Has anyone else ever found these pages missing from their copy of this publication?  I would not want to think anyone would knowingly sell a damaged item.  It is the original 1994 edition.  I love this atlas and am very upset.

were they cut, torn, or pulled out?  Or was the book misassembled, pages out of order?

I went through the entire atlas page by page.  There was no evidence of cut, torn or pulled out or out of order.  My only thought is the pages were left out at time of assembly.  Otherwise the atlas is in pristine condition.  Thank you for  your suggestions.

Anyone have a damaged copy of the 1994 atlas that would have the pages C80 thru C87 intact?  I know it is a long shot but I really want those pages if possible. Thank you for reading this message.

Eight missing pages would indicate a printing/binding anomaly.  Such are rare but certainly not unknown. Hope you can get copies of those sheets to rectify the problem.

Most likely the C80 to C87 of other HB Atlas' editions are identical or near identical with perhaps a slight scale difference. Better having something than nothing.  The publisher may even provide the missing pages, to correct their misprint.
