SAME BOOK, DIFFERENT TITLE?

Darryl Atchison writes: "Here is a quick question for our
readers.  I came across a reference to a publication recently
on the Internet which seemed somewhat familiar to me but yet
somehow not quite as per my recollection so I did a further
check on a couple of websites to corroborate my suspicions.

The text I came across was entitled "Matthew Boulton: Master
Silversmith 1760 - 1790" by Eric Delieb and Michael Roberts.
It was published in New York in 1971 by Clarkson N. Potter.

I was already familiar with another book by Delieb and Roberts
entitled "Great Silver Manufactory: Matthew Boulton and the
Birmingham Silversmiths, 1760 - 1790.  This book was also
published in 1971 in London, England by Studio Vista.

Both books are 144 pages in length.

I suspect that these two books are, in fact, the same publication
but that they were published simultaneously under different titles
for both British and U.S. markets.

I wonder if our readers can either verify or disprove this
theory, or comment upon other numismatic books which may have
been simultaneously published under different titles. Thanks."
