[9] The last date shown is 1971 for the Revised Edition (2nd overall printing), but this date clearly relates to the first impression of the second edition, of which this is an undeclared later reprint, 1975 or later, as shown by the publisher’s address. The original edition was published in 1968

[10] The first printing is said to be copyrighted 1970; no other date is given on the title page, but the publisher’s advertising leaf near the front is dated April 1973, so this printing cannot predate that and is presumed to be from that time
