Your Amazon link is to the first edition (1967). The second edition (1969) is the one to get. "Soon after it was first published in a 'hard-cover' edition a large amount of hitherto unknown or inaccessible material became available to the author and he has made full use of it"

Yeah there doesn't seem to be a link or and attached PDF on this page, and weirdly the older revisions of this page don't have them either??
