Hi there.
Can anyone tell me when the first edition of Walther Models PP and PPK 1929-1945, by James L Rankin, was published? I have one that's dated 1974. Is there an earlier edition?

Thanx

Copyright 1974
second printing 1976
third 1980
fifth 1989

There is no fourth printing listed, mine is from 1989 and has the previous editions listed. Those books sell for over $100 in this crazy world.

Mine was the 3rd Printing. however I also Remember the 3 Volume set that came out in 1981? Vol. 3 delt with Pistols up the P.5. I had bought it. I remember also writing to Mr. Rankin. I had asked him if .380 and .9x18 Makarov were Interchangeable. He actually wrote me back. That was in 1988. Paul
