Here a some screen comparisons of the contents to both the standard edition (first two images) and the extended volume 1 (last three images for any one that is interested.  I have not purchased volume 2 as yet to compare.

These are only approximate pages so they probably won't match with the printed version as the pages numbers a relevant to the font size, but it gives you the same idea of how much extra is in the extended version compared to the standard.  These pages do not also contain the notes on each pages (ie the footnotes, not the back of the book notes) as these are contained on separate pages at the back of the file.  However of these footnotes there are about 440 individual footnotes in volume one of the extended version compared to about 190 in the standard. There are 62 pages of end notes in Volume one compared to 54 pages of end notes for the full standard edition. There are also 49 photos/pictures in the Standard edition compared to 55 in Volume one of the extended.

The introductions and the prologue seem to contain the same information.

Breaking down to each year you can see which areas have the most additional information.

Up to 1945, 82 pages compared to 19

1945 - 1954 119 pages compared to 33

1954 - 1955 35 pages compared to 22

1956 63 pages compared to 25

1957 95 pages comapred to 54

1958 92 pages compared to 53

1959 78 pages compared to 43

1960 176 pages compared to 133

There is also the 'Swish of the Curtain' chapter 12 in the Standard version which is about Brian Epstein and George Martin, which is not in the extended version, but the information is spread out through the main text in the appropriate timeframes.

Assuming your first reference is the UK standard edition, and not the US (the page numbering differs in the printed version as pages pre- The Prologue are roman numerals, with page 1 being the first page of The Prologue) and that all of 1960 is in Book One of the Extended, here is the total difference for 1961-2, based on Joe's description. In the UK Standard, 1961-2 run from page 473 to page 870, giving a length of 433 pages. Assuming there is no 1960 in Book Two of the Extended, then 1961-2 run from page 829 to page 1530, giving a length of 701 pages. Meaning that, between them, those two years see an addition of 268 pages.

Remember, any comments on content go in the spoiler thread.

And, Lokipei, if you are who I think, like the new name! (If not, sorry for confusing you!)

I assume that I am reading the UK version, being in Australia we usually do, however these were both purchased from the Ibooks Apple store on an Ipad.  The pages numbers are approximate as these are dependent on the font that I have set, but both books will be relative to each other.  There may be slightly more or less pages in the paper versions, but I made them as approximate as I could, as the e-versions are formatted differently.

Extended volume 2 starts at the beggining of 1961 as I have the sample version as I am yet to purchase it yet.

And yes, I changed my name from meanmrmustid to Lokipei to avoid any confusion with meanmistermustard above!
