There's a lot of mis-information out there regarding the publication of this book with a lot of website sellers stating 1997. This is untrue, though i've been unable to confirm the precise date, but do know that i was sitting at Loch Fleet with a friend looking at it in 1974/75 and it had just been published. ~ Thank you for your comment ~ Administrator
