Thanks for the heads-up on this, Jeremy - I don't generally buy US books, but I had the US CoH Deluxe and went for it for the sake of completeness. At US $2.92 (3.5% of list price) for a shrinkwrapped copy, it seemed like a fairly good deal !

Interestingly (to a tiny minority of people who care about insignificant book facts), it is a couple of mm thinner than the UK version, presumably being printed on slightly thinner paper (and the slipcase is correspondingly thinner). The spine is also slightly more curved.

Just wondering if anyone watched this BBC documentary, with Alan Yentob? (Although as I type, it's just finishing...)

My Amazon order also shipped today (and it looks like they upgraded the free shipping to UPS -- presumably because it was so late dispatching)...

I also notice on the website that the price has dropped by another couple of pounds (now 34.97) and it is marked as being In Stock, so Amazon.co.uk definitely looks to be the best bet price/availability-wise at the moment.


Edit: The book turned up today. The slipcase is nicely done and overall it is a nice looking book. I haven't got the standard edition, and having only briefly browsed it in my local bookstore, I'm not sure if there are any other differences (besides the limitation page), but I don't think so.
