identical to the later volumes - white paper and a red card cover.

I wasn't aware that Volume 1 was ever reprinted. I do know that a 
limited edition of the whole work, bound in one volume, was published 
in 1976.

Haven't a clue what happened with the Kingsmead reprints.

I can ask John Baldwin if he knows what went on with CBOH if its 
vital to know such information!
