    I found two copies of Lecky's "Wrinkles" in a
    bookstore in Vancouver, BC a couple of years ago. One
    was from the 19th century, and the other was the 22nd
    Edition from 1942. If I recall correctly, the asking
    price was $120 Canadian for the older edition, and $40
    Canadian for the more recent edition. I compared the
    two and concluded that the 1942 edition included
    substantially everything from the earlier edition,
    plus some additions. I bought the 1942 edition. I
    guess I didn't get as good a deal as Frank did.
