I agree with all of the above. I actually really like the colour and texture of the traycase, but the colour of the book itself is just bland. I guess little things make all the difference on the construction, and this book has many little differences, of which none seem to be improvements. On the CoH, the stamping of the JRRT on the back (and on the traycase) is very deep, but on S&G it almost looks painted on because there is no indentation whatsoever into the leather.
When I look at the CoH it feels solid, sharp, textured and well defined. The S&G just feels.... vague.
I don't want to be overly negative, I do think it is a nice book, but I think last time we got something really special (as we should have for 350 pounds!!) and this time we only got something ordinary (and even "just" 250 pounds should be a cut above ordinary).
