Does anyone know if there is a difference between the 2 books below?
If so what are the differences?
Are they the same book just with difference titles and publishers?

http://www.amazon.com/Fine-arms-armor-Treasur...collection
Fine arms and armor: Treasures in the Dresden collection
Johannes Schobel (Author), Jurgen Karpinski (Photographer), M. O. A. Stanton (Translator), Claude Blair (Foreword)
Hardcover: 255 pages

http://www.amazon.com/Princely-Armour-Selecti...Collection
Princely Arms and Armour (A Selection From the Dresden Collection)
Johannes Schobel (Author), Jurgen Karpinski (Photographer), M. O. A. Stanton (Translator)
Hardcover: 255 pages


Thanks

I believe they're different editions of the same book.

Thanks Chad for the quick response.

According to Amazon the page count of both books is the same, so I'm assuming the content is exactly the same.

Hi Danny,
My copy combines both titles: 'Princely Arms and Armour, Treasures from the Dresden Collection' and then subtitled on the frontispiece 'A Selection from the Dresden Collection'. Published in London - the other title could be a USA version.
It has the same author, translator, photographer and foreword writer, 255 pages, 187 plates (plenty in colour). Well worth laying out a few dollars if you are thinking of buying it.
