I've not come across that one. 'Liberation in the Palm of your Hand' is (I seem to remember) over 900 pages - is the 3 volume set more extensive in its analysis or does it extend beyond the Lam Rim into other teachings from Pabongka?
I haven't read the Michael Richard's 'Liberation in the Palm of your Hand' as I had heard that he made some errors in the translation - I'm not sure if this is true but I do have great faith in Geshe Lobsang Tharchin, so I can't really say what the differences are. It covers the whole Lamrim discourse of Je Pabongkhapa, not any of his other teachings. It contains extensive footnotes of explanation and references to other parts of the text, which might account for the increased length. You'd have to have a look at it to be able to tell what the differences are
