I may have posted this in the wrong section, feel free to move to miscellaneous or another suitible area.

I am currently shopping at the Mises store for both Human Action, and Man, Economy and State. I checked on Amazon for the reviews of both works and I found that the first Scholar's Edition of Man, Economy and State has 104 more pages than the new Scholar's Edition. Does anyone know the reason for this?

Also, are the first scholar's editions of these texts of higher quality? I ask this because of the considerably higher price tag each fetch.

On the last page of the first Human Action Scholar's Edition it reads:

"This Scholar's Edition of Human Action is
printed on 50 lb. acid-fiee Finch Fine paper; it is
set using the Yanson typeface; the case cloth is
Rainbow Odyssey, importedfiom the Czech
Republic, a natural-finish, moisture-resistant book
cloth; the endsheets are Rainbow antique
soapstone by Ecological Fibers; the signatures are
Smythsewn; the foil is non-tarnishing gold fiom
Nakai International; and the book was produced at
R.R. Donnelley in Crawfordsuille, Indiana."

That certainly sounds incredible! I'm just curious as to whether or not the new books are of the same standard. Thanks.

Woah, that looks amazing!

Ron Paul is for self-government when compared to the Constitution. He's an anarcho-capitalist. Proof.

Wow I may have to go to amazon to pick up one of these. That looks incredible. Why did this edition have to go out of print?

Thank you very much for posting the pictures.
