Lou (and others) -
Thanks for mentioning the Observer's Handbooks.  These are described on
the web site I mentioned (see above) and directions are given there on
who to contact in the Webb Society in order to obtain copies.  Note
however that they are no longer available from Enslow publishers, and
volume 1 (on double stars) is out of print.
I should add that I am not unbiased in my recommendations regarding the
Webb Society, as they published my book (!) "The 'Non-Existent' Star
Clusters of the RNGC" and their _Monograph No. 1_.  This book is also
still available from them, and also available from Willmann-Bell, Inc.
(see http://www.willbell.com/).
