Dear Moo,
You can do it with two commands
     select #0:51
     ~select #0:51a

or all in one command with
     select #0:51 & ~ #0:51a

where & = AND (intersection) and ~ = NOT
(this approach would be the more convenient if you were
using commands other than select,  such as
"color" "display" etc.)

I hope this helps,
