Steve, to be honest, I wouldn't bother. Much as I respect Bill Pearl, the book could be an eighth of its size. Take an exercise like triceps pushdowns. There will be a separate entry for:

Standing triceps pushdowns
Kneeling triceps pushdowns
Reverse grip triceps pushdpwns
Reverse grip kneeling triceps pushdowns
One arm triceps pushdowns

...and so on, ad nauseam. Each one fully described and illustrated.

For nostalgia or as a collectible - maybe worth it. For training knowledge - again, much as I like Bill Pearl, I would say save your dough.
