I suspect the previous answers were probably not perfectly useful to you.

Robin never published the "500 Shots" book. I think it was even assigned an ISBN, but it never came out.
"Position Play in 3-C" was printed, and has sold on eBay for between $50 and $168. Eddie was selling them last July at the Las Vegas WorldCup event.
I have an extra copy.

It means that it was never put onto paper, and may never have been written. It probably does not exist in any physical form. No one in the entire world has a copy of it. If you find Eddie Robin, and support the publishing of the book financially, maybe it will be finished within a year or two.

There were several other Robin books that were also assigned ISBNs that were never published, including a third one pocket book and a straight pool book, as well as a "third" volume of carom shots.

The answer to your first question is that an ISBN was created for the book.

The answer to your second question is that the books were never made.

It is surprising but true that a book does not have to exist to have an ISBN. If you want more information, I suggest that you contact George Fels through Billiards Digest, as he as listed as a co-editor or some such for some of the non-existent books.

I guess he didn't believe you the first two times you told him that.
