This is the book I bought in a a 2nd hand shop the other day for $25.
Would need some help in dating this.
Unfortunately the very first page ( guessing the page that contains the date, copyright page ) is missing. Everything else in this book is intact, perfect tight binding still.
The hardcover is grey.
One page has sticky tape to mend a small tear, other than that , its a perfect book for its age.
It does look quite an old edition, possibly a 1st or 2nd edition.
Can somebody please help me identify its age. There is nothing in the book to indictate its age unfortunately.

    I have most of the books , 1st editions but havent loaded them here yet. There is another one she did before all those and she had it printed over in the UK. It was called " About Us ". Been searching for this one, extremely rare.
