Customer Questions & Answers
Hello there :) There are two versions of this book with similar book covers 50th and 60th. However in the Product image as well as the Product details, it shows/states that this is the 50th Anniversary edition of the book which I'm looking for. Will you be able to confirm this for me? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! - Customer question on
