As a librarian I can help you with that. Go to your local public library and ask them to get the book Interlibrary Loan for you. There are two libraries in NY that have this book. One is The New York Public Library and the other is the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library. There are 34 other libraries in the US that have that edition and there are 51 that have the first edition. The BOCES, PUTNAM & NORTHERN WESTCHESTER library has the first edition. It is possible that the book does not circulate from those particular libraries, but there are others from which your local library can borrow.Bruces45 said:I just wish I knew someone who had one I could borrow so i could read it, and see if it is worth buying. I see he offers no return policy, so onec I get it it would be mine.
Paperback, hardback, large print, new edition, sometimes books that are published in library versions with nonacidic paper would all have different ISBN numbers. ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number and after one is assigned any changes to the book would necessitate a new number. A book that goes through multiple printings does not receive a new number because the only difference between it and the earlier ones is when it is printed. When the book is printed is not considered a change. By each version of the book having a different ISBN you really know what you are getting because the ISBN is registered to a book and it contains a full description of that book including the number of pages, the height, type of cover, and other pertinent info.OD said:George,
I have a question maybe you can answer, why would a book have two different ISBNs?
