That is not a valid ISBN. Valid ISBNs have 10 digits (or 13 if they're new, but not one from 1971). The 95 at the end is the price, and it may have a dropped leading 0.

I think this is your edition:

Matthew (mpounsett) | 8 comments I think you're right. That is how the ISBN is printed (on the binding) of this edition though.. odd that they'd drop a leading zero and the trailing X. Unfortunately the ISBN isn't printed anywhere else in the book that I can find.

Quite common 1970 +/- 2 years, actually.
