It has arrived. And I have very bizarre news: this IS a dupe of the contents of the second "corrected" leatherbound Barnes and Noble edition, apparently licensed and with the exact same font (but bigger typesetting), minus all the Joshi notes, the Juvenilia, and the "Supernatural Fiction" essay, etc. This edition features an introduction by Eric Carl Link, instead.

Here's where it gets interesting: they seem to have fixed some of the typos found by Greg and myself, but not all of them. I've spent the last several hours checking the new edition against the typos we've recorded in here, and these are the ones still present in this new edition, adjusted for the altered page count:
202.11: sins like Ptolemaism, Calvinism, anti-Darwinisn,] sins like Ptolemaism, Calvinism, anti-Darwinism,
456.34: The next day they spoke with a ship with violet sails] The next day they spoke a ship with violet sails (they used my "correction" that Joshi shot down, ha!)
902.11: I made no progess.] I made no progress.
994.1 I had seen him one or twice in my youth ] I had seen him once or twice in my youth

Oddly, the typo perspexorange points out from "The Call of Cthulhu" upthread has been fixed.

The contents don't seem to be listed anywhere online, so I'll transcribe from the table of contents:
