Thanks - Amazon's "Marketplace" has a quite a few, some at astronomical prices. But quite a few of the sellers won't ship to Norway. I tried four different sellers that didn't want to have me as a customer. The one I finally found (and at a very acceptable price) offered a 1986 edition. I suppose that it is as good as the 1960 edition; anything else would be a pity.

Well, who knows... I've seen some outright terrible college level textbooks in modern times. The worst one that comes to mind was one in data communications, with a small green Martian taking you step by step through the fantastic wold of intergalactic telecommunication... in a college/university level textbook!

If the PSSC Physics 1986 edition has fallen into that trap, or something similar, I guess I will get back to Amazon for a 1960 edition. My impression of the PSSC is that they are not much likely to go in that direction. Then, it would be interesting to buy the 1960 edition as well, for comparing the two editions side by side, to see what has changed, and by how much, in 26 years!
