    As Gerry said, more than 200 pages.
    Personally I like the spiral bound books better as they will lay flat and fold back, FWIW.

    The Lost Art Revisited is an update of the original Lost Art, so while it contains all of the original information, it also contains additional content here and there throughout. For instance, there are new venting capacity charts. There is also a whole new chapter with Frequently Asked Questions.

    As one reviewer says, "This book is a treasured possession for me. I have used the information contained in the earlier edition of this book to solve many issues for my customers. The new information is even more eye opening. If you are in heating business in the Northeastern US it is a must for you."

    Unfortunately we can't print it with the spiral binding anymore.

    My old one is signed by the author. I think that makes it worth more.

    My original is signed by Dan as well.

    When I learned TLAOSH was being revisited, I sent Dan more detailed information on Nash Jennings Vacuum Heating Pumps which he kindly added, giving a more detailed explanation of how these units work.

    Thanks Dan.

    Were the spiral bound books "home made" so to speak?
    Or mass produced just as the others?

    @ChrisJ - They were printed in large batches, held as inventory, and shipped out of our office in NY. In 2016 we switched to print-on-demand through Amazon and spiral binding is not an option.
