Beware, many copies listed have early dates like 1984 or 1989 but are in fact published after 2007. IBSN numbers were introduced in 1966 with only 9 digits, 10 digit from 1970 & 13 digits from 2007, so if these so called 1984 copies, have a 13 digit IBSN number, they were published sometime AFTER 2007. We can only assume that they are relatively modern reprints (of a 1984 copy). This copy we have is a genuine 1984 publication, 1st edition paperback (1st hardback was by Allan Lane in 1982).
