Can anyone point me towards where I may be able to find a list of all the editions of Howard Eves' Introduction to the History of Mathematics?

I know little about this book; I understand that it's used in some American universities as a text for their undergraduate History of Mathematics courses.

All the online sources may give the year of publication, or the edition, but apart from 6th edition 1990 I have no idea what was published when.


WorldCat appears to give $1953$ for the first edition, $1964$ for the Revised editions, $1969$ for the third edition, $1976$ for the fourth edition, $1983$ for the fifth edition, and $1990$ for the sixth edition. There is one listing for a $1989$ sixth edition, but I suspect that it’s simply an error on someone’s part.
