  2. John, does this reprint preserve the original 1970 version of the rules?

    1. This edition is a copy of the 4th edition, with additional new chapters of previously unpublished material. This contains most of the original rules, but with extra material they added over time.

      The rules were first published in February 1970; the 2nd Edition published August 1971; the 3rd Edition, published November 1974, was reprinted in 1976; the 4th Edition was published April 1977 and was reprinted April 1978.
