The last 2-Volume Book Version was done in 1992, by Michael and Irene Ash, for VCH (now Wiley) for North American distribution as "Industrial Chemical Thesaurus, 2nd Edition" and Edward Arnold (later Butterworth-Heinemann; now Elsevier) for rest of world distribution as "Thesaurus of Chemical Products, Second Edition". These are identical except for titles, ISBN's and imprint. Wiley reissued ISBN's sometime after they acquired VCH and now lists the publication date as 1996.
