The following is from an Internet search that I did:
DocBook 5.1: The Definitive Guide
by Norman Walsh
Edited by Richard Hamilton
ISBN: 9780596805029, published in conjunction with XML Press.
Version 1.4.9 for DocBook V5.1b8
Updated: 26 December, 2012
Copyright © 2010, 2011, 2012 Norman Walsh.
I ordered a copy of the DocBook 5: The Definitive Guide from Barnes & Noble. I received a copy with a Copyright of 2010. It has the same ISBN Number. But, I do not think that this copy has been updated (26 December 2012) to reflect the changes for version 1.4.9 for DocBook V5.1b8.
I am somewhat confused since I am new to DocBook! Can someone please clear this matter up for me.
I appreciate any and all assistance in this matter!
I'd be happy to help. DocBook 5.1: The Definitive Guide is an online version which has been updated on December 26, 2012. DocBook 5: The Definitive Guide does not contain the same updates as DocBook 5.1: The Definitive Guide.

Thank you for the valuable information.
I have decided to keep my copy of DocBook 5 and refer to the online version for the updated 5.1 information.
I am probably considered "old-fashioned", but I still prefer using printed books; especially for technical information.
