My US edition (purchased from Amazon) has 1344 pages.

Of course no one asked me, but that one-volume Arden Shakespeare is one
of the most dreadful rip-offs I have ever seen.  It has virtually NO
apparatus, even while it trades on the "Arden" name which, if anything,
suggests that the edition is going to boast all sorts of authoritative
scholarship to ACCOMPANY the text.  Of course, anyone who looks at the
book can see that it's hardly worth having, especially at the price.

The actual page count for The Arden Shakespeare Complete Works is 1350.
There is also only one edition - not as the Amazon sites suggest a US
and a UK edition. We'll get the sites updated accordingly.

The Arden Complete Works contains brief introductions to each play -
written specially for this volume by the Arden general editors - Richard
Proudfoot, Ann Thompson and David Scott Kastan. It also contains a
general introduction written by the same and an extensive glossary.
