I know, it's a problem.... Somehow Google loves showing the 1.1 book  
in its search results but not the later ones.

Possible solutions the Subversion book people could consider employing:

1. Install a robots.txt file instructing Google and other indexers  
not to index old versions of the book, and/or:

2. Add a box to the top of each page of the old versions of the book  
advising the visitor that this documentation is for historical  
interest only, with a link to the current version of that page in the  
current book.
