That just depends on edition #. My 4th edition lists Tetra Press as distributor.
Vol. 3 lists Tetra Press as publisher in the US, also. Some errors were
corrected, like the famous early cross-up between Flying Fox and SAE captions in
Vol. 1. [They look OK in my 4th ed., BTW]

Basically, I think they are all the same works.
