Does anyone know if "EUROPEAN ARMOUR: C.1660-C.1700" is exactly the same as "European armour, circa 1066 to circa 1700"?

European armour, circa 1066 to circa 1700 [Hardcover]
Claude Blair (Author)
Hardcover: 248 pages
Publisher: Batsford/ Macmillan (1959)
Language: English
ASIN: B0007E56C6

According to the Amazon descriptions above EUROPEAN ARMOUR: C.1660-C.1700 has 24 less pages.

The only version available via AMAZON is EUROPEAN ARMOUR: C.1660-C.1700, so I'm wondering if I should purchase this version or try to find the earlier circa 1066 to circa 1700 version.

Anyone know what the differences are betwen these 2 versions?

Thanks

Danny

The cover is the right one. The title on Amazon is wrong. It is the book you want.

A book on European armour 1660-1700 would be a thin book indeed.

I knew it was the same book, I was just worried about the page difference.

If you see my original post, there's a difference of 24 pages between them.

I don't want to purchase the reprint if its inferior in content to the earlier printing.
