Hi all, hereby the result of my research on the 1st edition of C&S rulebook. This research has been performed by checking the books i have in my collection, i didn't search in the net other info than those i derived from the observation of what i have in my hands.

The study is based on my 3 copies of my collection!

Here we go!

First outcomes from the comparison of the 3 volumes:

FRONT COVERS: no main differences

BACK COVERS: artwork of book #1 different from the other two

SPINES: spine of book #1 is blank, spine of book #3 is smaller than the other 2 books

Result of the comparison of interior details:

TITLE PAGE: book 1 has no ref to S.C.A. (line below main title), the other two books are identical

COPYRIGHT PAGE: no differences among the 3 books

CATALOGUE: book 1 has a different list, with less titles compared than the other two books


Conclusions
I'd classify the following printing sequence:
book #1 -> first printing (main reason is the smaller catalogue and no credits to S.C.A.)
book #2 -> second printing (main reason is the same size of the first print)
book #3 -> third printing

Any thought? Any input from "external" sources?

Thanks and ciaooo
