Masting and Rigging of English Ships of War James Lees what is difference in editions?

Recommended Posts

I am interested in purchasing a copy of Masting and Rigging of English Ships of War by james Lees.


I have noticed two different covers, one grey with a color picture in the center, the other a yellow brown with a line drawing.

Can anyone tell me the difference between the two.

The yellow cover was used on the first edition in 1979, and the grey cover with the photo on subsequent editions (from 1984 onward).  In my (1990) edition, the 1984 edition is noted as a 'revised' edition and 1990 as a 'reprint', but there is nothing to say what (if any) additions or corrections were made from 1979 to 1984.
