OK - the first volume I have with an ISBN is 1970/71 SBN 356 03655 3

Then we have

1972/73 ISBN 0 356 04379 7
1973/74 ISBN 0 356 04916 7

From 1965/66 there is a Library of Congress record number 66-19459. This same number appears until the SBN in 1970/71.

I'm not sure what the significance of the Library of Congress record card is. I was under the impression that it was the US version of the ISBN but as it seems to be the same for all the volumes on my shelf between 1965 and 1970 it is probably of less use.

I will ask Helen - there are some advantages to being married to a retired Chartered Librarian (just don't ask here to stamp your books).
