The first book, Carnivorous Plants, 1979/2005

is a very different book from

the second book, Insect Eating Plants and How to Grow Them, 1988, published between the two editions of the first book.

Though I'm not sure that you're talking about the two different titles and not different printings of the same book.

If you're talking about two different printings of Carnivorous Plants, and I believe you are, there are probably a few typo's corrected in the second printing, though I may be mistaken. There may also be a few other differences. I have a copy of the first printing and Genlisea is misspelled, and a few other words in the volume. I remember reading a book review, somewhere that discussed the differences, though I haven't been able to find it again, yet.

Cheers Joseph, I think I will then find myself a copy of the older, first edition. :)

As said earlier, I don't think that there is a great difference between them. Slack's second book is very different in the first edition and the later one. Quite a few of the original photos were lost . The biggest problem with Slack's second book is finding a first edition, they are like rocking horse poo, and can go for a lot of money.
