The important question to ask about the new Pizzey edition is
"will the diagrams, descriptions and distribution maps all be
together on the same page?"  The few times I used Pizzey as a
field guide I found I was always thumbing back and forth to get
the full story.  

I also thought the Pizzey text was excellent, but as a field
guide it just was not well organised enough, and I think this may
be the reason why it became so neglected.  That, and the fact
that not all plates were in colour, of course...
