I have SA &WH in paperback, but so suggested to the family that I would like the Cape hardback versions! They arrived from England for Xmas! The paperback versions are available in New Zealand holdings of course.
The new hb books still have “Jonathan Cape London” on the title page although the publishing history page says “Jonathan Cape, Random House, 20 Vauxhall Bridge Road London SW1V 2SA”. SA 2020 & WH 2018. The dust sheet (cover) says “with many illustrations” (WH but not SA). The back of the WH cover is b&w with a list of titles plus flags and ISBN code. But the SA cover also has what I thought at first was a mark at the top but is a green image of a branch (I think).
I have most of the series in Cape hb ex the “Wellington Public Libraries Junior Department” including a first edition of GN “first published 1947”. But rebound by the library so missing the endpaper maps and dust jacket (and coming apart, so sold off1). But many have the original dust jacket protected by plastic, and the endpaper maps.
