The colored print of ONE and TOO with FBI logo are published in UK so I don't know. I was thinking these was two different versions, as you guess. But giving the fact that for traps ONE and TOO, the colored version with FBI logo is UK too, I don't know. The mono print of Traps FORE is US, not UK. And the colored Traps FORE I have with FBI logo is published in US too. So perahps all their first items where published in UK, even US version.

Looking to my T&T items, the first UK prints were published in UK by Chris Harvey in 80's (like Traps ONE and TOO) but are published after US prints in  late 70's

Resurrecting this one...

I've seen pictures of monochrome versions of:

1. Grimtooth's Traps
2. Grimtooth's Traps Too
3. Grimtooth's Traps Fore
4. Citybook I

I have a US size mono of #1.  I have seen UK digest size monos of #1-3.  I'm trying to figure out the rest of the combinations that exist.  According to Ian's site (You need a browser that supports frame to view this page.) some of these exist, but I may be reading the notes wrong.  I'm nearly certain that #3 does not have a US version.  Summarizing:

#  US UK
-    --          --
1    Y          Y
2    ?          Y
3    N          Y
4    ?          Y

If we can get this straight, I think I can post the complete order of all Grimtooth printings.  (And I'm just curious about the Citybook - those are otherwise well marked, I believe.)

The City Book 1 monochrome with green cover is in US sized format but is published in UK.  Copyright: first printing May 1982 (according to my copy).
I am pretty sure that US version of GT Too does not exist in mono format.

By US size mono of #1, do you mean the grey cover one?  That would be a US print.

As Loki said, the mono citybook 1 and the digest sized (but really A5 size) 1-3 are all UK prints.  In fact I think those are all and the only UK prints.

All the US prints are full size.  Definitely, at least 1 US print for each of the 4 you list exist - probably at least 4 US prints of 1, at least 2 US prints of 2 and 4, and at least 1 US print of 3.  I suspect at least 1 more US print of each.

Yes, the grey one.  That's full size.  Cool - sounds like I can cross two items off my list, because they don't exist!  I'll update my Grimtooth notes and see what I can get posted.

I think there might be 2 prints of the grey one before they switched to blue.

I don't have mine handy, but I don't recall any markings clearly identifying it.  Do you have any more info?
