On first glance the two books look identical, ISBNs are the same as are impressions, but they are clearly not the same

Stu, Do you think they have better paper, buckram is a better paper for me than regular paper as Khamûl states?


Yes, the AU edition is generally of a noticeably higher quality. The Buckram (or buckram-like) boards appear much more durable than the paper covered boards of the UK edition. The pages in the AU edition are also a bit whiter.

The opposite goes for S&G. The AU edition actually has slightly thinner paper-covered boards than the UK edition.
