    Thanks. The book costs about $75, but it's possible that I might get an inter library loan from some university here in Calif.

    I think the modern method is based on a 1976 paper by Lieske, et al. Expressions for Precession Quantities.

    You'll likely find a copy at some well-stocked university library. I once found a copy at the UC Berkeley campus library. You can search the UC catalog online at WorldCat: University of California Libraries I did so, and indeed it was there. You may also be able to search other university libraries from your home.
