Abstract : An annotated bibliography compiled from Soviet open sources published 1964-1966 and one Chicom open source published in 1965. It is the second in a series and it reflects Soviet developments from about mid-1965 in investigating lunar revolution, rotation, libration, and mapping techniques. The entries are arranged alphabetically by author or by the first word in the title. There are 37 entries and an index of authors is provided at the end of the report. Pertinent information included: velocity profile of the Moon, libration effect based on meridian observations of lunar diameters in Greenwich in 1900-1954, determination of the equinox correction from lunar observations by Newcomb's method, methods for computing the ephemerides of the Moon, lunar polygonometry technique, determination of the constants of lunar libration, theory of physical libration of the Moon, diurnal rotation of planets, gravity and shape of the Moon, lunar measuring equipment.
