P129.
The building is described as four story but there are only two (at best) three storys on the map.

Library is spelt incorrectly on the map.

The player characters are apparently lead to a rear parlor. I could not see a rear parlor on the map.

p54 and p130 both use the word ‘greyish’. Should this be ‘grayish’ to match the US spelling used elsewhere?

p16 mentions a ‘doctor’s office’. This would commonly be called a ‘doctor’s surgery’ in the UK.

In the notes for London the text mentions a devastating fire. There were multiple fires that destroyed London. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Early_fires_of_London

You raise an important point. Why does a European-produced book about a British setting use American spelling in the first place?

360m people in North America v's 70m in UK & Ireland perhaps? I imagine it is simply about sales.

:roll: I suppose we should just be glad it isn’t in Chinese or Hindi, then…

I mean, if the aim here is to shoot for a “globally standardised” language with the most speakers, rather than a “culturally relevant” one for the setting.
