Modern dead-tree Python resources

I'm sitting here looking at my copy of David Beazley's Python Essential 
Reference, which I find wonderful, but am lamenting that it only covers 
through Python 1.5.2. And I see that the 2nd edition covers through 
Python 2.1.

Is there a good book that covers Python at least through 2.2 (including 
new-style classes, etc.)? I'm particularly looking for something with 
large appendices of reference material. (alternatively, if someone's 
publishing print versions of the Python documentation, that would 
possibly be of interest. I know I saw some for Python 1.5 or 1.6 in a 
used bookstore, but don't recall who published them.)
