What are the main differences in content between the two editions, Sam? Is the second a major rewrite of the text, or just an attempt to substitute pictures of gear from 1965 with pictures of gear from 1971? What was the impact of the Nemrod-Seamless sponsorship? I notice from my 1974 printing that there are two pages of fin pictures, the first (page 30) with no Nemrod-Seamless products, presumably from the first printing, and the second (page 51) featuring the "Seamless Competition" fin and the "Seamless Venturi" fin with three other manufacturers' fins.21 wrote:I would strongly suggest that you order both editions:
1965 No ISBN or LCCC number-First Avon printing August 1965
1971 LCCC number 71-146843, Second Avon printing March 1971 - this edition sponsored by Nemrod-Seamless.
All self respecting vintage divers would want both copies.
I posted the following information on a different forum in response to your original query four years ago about Reg Vallintine (note spelling):21 wrote:By the way since you are a Brit what ever happened to Reg Valentine in the UK? He was a British bibliophile of note in years passed. SDM
