UT looks top justified -- didn't look at any of the others.

Do all of the jackets have the following ISBN sticker? This is the jacket from one of the Waterstones copies, which I think has its own ISBN.

HarperCollins tells me they were not aware of this. It does seem like those stickers were just on the Waterstones copies like you guessed. The '1' after the '978' indicates a US country code so I would have thought that maybe they stickered the copies used for international orders, but that doesn't explain why some are being sold from within the UK.

Interesting - thanks for doing the legwork. I expect waterstones just needed a different number for their warehousing as they were selling them at a different price than the unsigned copies, rather than first-come first served. I guess they must just have a block of ISBNs for this kind of thing.

Yeah, that makes sense. I wrote to them about this as well so I'll report back if I hear anything else.
