Indeed the first edition of the single volume was published in 2004, but the current edition, the one anybody will buy now as new, is from 2015.

Maybe you still know, just to be sure ... The 7 (+1) volumes by de Buck (+Allen) only contain the Spells in Hieroglyphs (no transcription or translation).

Faulkner gives only an English translation of the Spells, listed by de Buck. Also no transcription ...

No difference that I can see, it's just that if anybody buys it new then they will get the 2015 edition, the only one in print.

But not the only one on the market. With identical content I would rather pay attention to the price ... Not the year.
