2nd Printings of the US B&L are already being sold in stores.

Heard back from Waterstones: "I can advise that the signed editions do have a different ISBN on the back on the cover but we have to also have the ISBN for the no signed edition. "

Not especially informative or eloquent but nice of them to respond!

I'm not surprised that B&L is on to its second printing. The book seemed to have been sold out at most (online) retailers in the very first week.

That doesn't always imply additional impressions - The online retailers don't necessarily get huge stocks of a title, and these then get refreshed from the publisher's warehouse as required.

That said, in this case the book seems to have done quite well. From memory, CoH was up to 3 printings fairly rapidly.

Yesterday I was in one of those outlet bookstores that appear for a few moths and then disappear, (In Australia), and I was a little surprised to find a few first printings of B&L discounted already. Then I also found some 'Lay of A&I' there also. The latter were essentially in as new condition, while the B&L were a little scratch and dent they were acceptable, the one I got was 'Fine'. Admittedly the B&L does have that awful discounted book texter line on the base, but 'Lay of A&I' doesn't.
Unfortunately my days of perfectionist book collecting are over for now, while I am studying, but still, considering my local bookshops didn't have B&L stocked when I went to get it, I found the outlet bookstores stock reasonable considering they were only $5 AUD each.
