The description is incorrect - this is the 2005 edition, not the 2013 one

The description is incorrect - this is not the 2013 edition stated, which was never published, it is the 2005 edition. In itself, that doesn't matter too much, BUT if you also try and order Volumes 1, 2 and 4 from the same series, you can't get them from Amazon, either the 2013 or the 2005 editions.
I pre-ordered all 4 volumes of the March 2013 edition in January 2013. I waited patiently until the end of July when Amazon dispatched just volume 3. They said they would have the other volumes in stock and would dispatch them - I could return the volume 3 if the others never arrived, even after more than 30 days, so long as it was in new condition.
I contacted Barnes & Noble, who said that none of the 4 volumes was published in March 2013 and they didn't have a date for the publication, if it will ever be re-published.
Usually Amazon are very good at allowing items to be returned, but despite having an explicit e-mail allowing return in new condition after 30 days, they refused to honour the previous e-mail.
I then opened the package and found out that it wasn't the 2013 edition. I eventually managed to use the argument that they supplied the wrong edition to be able to return the book.
Be warned - If you buy this book knowing the above, I am sure you will find it very good, but don't be disappointed that it is not what is described.
