My findings echo those of Brian, in that the first ISBN is 1972-1973

1971-1972 has an SBN of 356 041112 3

I agree with Brian with regard to 1972-1974

The ISBNs of the subsequent volumes are as follows:
1974-75 0 356 08182 6
1975-76 0 356 08440 x (yes, an "x" rather than a digit!)
1976-77 0 354 04063 4
1977-78 0 354 04196 7
1978-79 0 354 04377 3
1979-80 0 354 04516 4
1980-81 0 354 04725 6
1981-82 0 356 07873 6
1982-83 0 356 09203 8 (22.50)
1983-84 0 356 10259 9 (22.50)
1984-85 0 356 10907 0 (22.50)
1985-86 0 356 12359 6 (25.00)
1986-87 0 356 14439 9 (29.50)

As the last five had the price printed on the jacket flap, I have included this for comparison with Brian's prices quoted above for the early volumes. The sharp increases toward the end may have contributed to their demise in 1987. Although I bought the volumes from 1967 onwards new, I no longer have a record of what I paid for the ones prior to 1983.
