The big 9.5 by 12 inch, 2 inch thick Princeton Polychrome Press edition has quite a few color plates and has larger black and white images with more dynamic range than those in the softbound 7.5 by 10 edition.
Unfortunately there are at least two hardbounds. Another one by "MJF books" which I mistakenly first bought, is the same size as the softbound, has no color plates, and is on less opaque paper. What led me and other reviewers to seek a hardbound was a note in the preface in the softbound: "In order to realize this paperback edition of The Mythic Image, in reduced format, thirty-four color plates are reproduced in black and white ..."
Unfortunately it is hard to tell which hardbound edition used sellers are actually offering, but Amazon lets you e-mail a used book's seller. An e-mailed question about color plates and the book's size worked for me.
The 9.5 by 12 format Polychrome Press hardbound is ISBN-10: 0-691-09869-7 and has a dust jacket with the same image as the cover of the softbound.
