    Re: 1966 Bowditch: One volume or two?

    Yes Dan, my 1975 Vol. II is dark green (faded) in colour. Its preface states
    " This volume of the extensively revised edition....", but makes no
    reference to the year of the revised edition! So far, all the cross
    references from my 1977 Vol I to my 1975 Vol II match up...suggesting that
    Vol II was meant to last several Vols I. But like you, I can't recall having
    seen a 1975 Vol I
