I know some people had been looking for this. It's been very useful in developing a gunnery system that matches up pretty good to historical performance: link

That's great that there's a PDF of it. Robert Livingston is going to make a PDF version himself. I guess this will save him a lot of work unless he is going to make some changes.

It does need some corrections:

This is a great reference, but, is this legal? Someone simply uploads this to Scribd; is this (normally) with the author's permission?

I'm asking since I wasn't familiar with this site until I clicked on the link above.

I've seen works removed. So the authors have to react. But, it does look like it's open season on even copyrighted material.

Mobius: understood.

I've never been too convinced about this work. It certainly contains some useful data but a lot of the interpretation of that data has been subject to plenty of revision and criticism.

My own copy came with at least 10 loose separate pages of addenda and errata, and the changes just continued to flow across several internet forums over a period of 2-3 years. Eventually I just gave up trying to keep track of the alterations and evolving theories.

"My own copy came with at least 10 loose separate pages of addenda and errata,…"

As did mine and I agree with your assessment but I am not aware of any other similar published work on the topic – ?
