And mine is still overseas awaiting delivery service to resume.

They have provided a digital version in meantime, but I have yet to download it..as digital is not the same to me,.....unfortunately as I have too many books in the house even after a small clean up some months ago.

Just ordered a paper copy from Springer and downloaded the free digital version--1 mere 1.8GB! I don't think digital is practical with a book of this size, but it's nice to have.

Ken, I was finally allowed to open mine on Friday and spent yesterday going over the three volumes. Safe to say that these are the most complete books on our celestial companion yet.

From Luna lore to Apollo to Artemis. The lunar surface features are covered in sequence from 1 day old Moon onwards. Excellent details on lunar ‘ geology’ etc etc etc

Well worth the wait.....
