There were two printings of Inside Macintosh; the original printing was, I 
believe, a six or seven-volume set over time ... Subsequent to the release 
of System 7, they re-wrote and re-printed Inside Macintosh and it ended up 
split across a much wider number of volumes that were organized more on a 
functional, rather than chronological, basis.

IMO, the earlier printing of Inside Macintosh is both more readable and is 
also of greater historical interest. I had a number of books myself out of 
the second printing and I got rid of them some years ago, only to later go 
and re-purchase a complete set of the first printing to archive ;)
