Need Dennis Alder's BP Values, latest edition

I would like to get Dennis Alder's latest edition of "Blue Book of Modern Black Powder Values" I think it is the 3rd or 4th edition?
I tried ordering one from Amazon but the dofus sent me the first one published in 2000!
Anybody know where I can get the "right" edition?
Blue Book didn't answer my emails.
Thanks pards!

The one on Blue Book says it's by John Allen; The early one I have is by Dennis Adler. He doesn't do it any longer?

Ya know I didnt even notice that. 3rd Edition (2003) was by John B. Allen with Photography & editorial by Dennis Adler. 4th Edition (2004) was by John B. Allen & Dennis Adler. 5th Edition (2007) is only by John B Allen. Guess Dennis Adler bowed out. The 5th edition doesnt have any of the articles/stories w/color pictures about BP arms like the previous editions did. Might be because Adler republished his 'Colt Blackpowder Reproductions and Replicas - A Collectors and Shooters Guide' as a coffee table book. Has the same errors misidentifications and editing flaws that the original 1998 soft cover edition did though.

Better than nuttin I guess

Can't remember one of these books that I have read (must be dozens) that didn't have some errors or another.
The one I wonder about being an error is all the BP books I've read about the follow-on revolvers to the original Colts is that Signature Series cannot be lettered by Colt. I have three that are lettered by Colt.
Can't be I'm the only one in the BP community that has lettered Signature Series "Colts"?
Inquiring minds would love to know.

You might have lucked out on the Letters for your Sig Series guns. While there may, in fact, be others; you're are to only one I know of.
