Is there a concise list of printing differences of the various Arduin Grimoire books?

The sold auction in the second post by benjoshua is a recent acquisition of mine.  I've since picked up some more, to fill out my collection, as well as help a buddy start his, and, as an example, I'm seeing a huge difference between copies of IV - specifically, length of the book.

A Dragon Tree Press copy of IV comes in at about 150 pages and is "perfect-bound", but I've got a smaller (Grimoire Games?) copy that's significantly smaller and staple-bound.

The Wikipedia article details some differences in I, but doesn't provide anything for II-VIII.

Forgive me if this has been covered, and I've overlooked it.

I don't think Grimoire Games published IV or later.  I think the Dragon Tree Press ones will be the earliest copies but likely you have one of the later reprints done by Emperor's Choice - they reprinted these books in a lot of different covers and formats over the years.
