Since there's been some confusion about different editions of The Scything Handbook, I hope it's appropriate to clear that up in a thread here.

There are currently two english-language editions of the book:

The North American edition is published by New Society Publishers and is the paperback with the picture of a scythe against a fence.
The rest-of-the-world edition is published by Filbert Press in the UK. It is hardcover and is gray/mustard in color.

Content-wise there is no difference between the two, except for a few blurbs (from Joel Salatin, Hank Will & Ross Mars) that appear in the NA edition.

The book is also coming out in German in February 2017. It'll be called Das Sense-Handbuch and the Swiss publisher Haupt Verlag is putting it out. There's been talk of other foreign language editions, but nothing's official yet. Keep your eyes peeled if you're interested in other languages.

Thanks for your interest!
