Question about Amazon

  exdragon 17:23 27 Aug 2007

Just curious - I'm got a book here, cover price for soft back £14.99 & I want to order one from Amazon.

On the sellers' site, the hardback version is quoted as new at that price, but also at over £110 (shipped from the States).

The new softback edition is shown between £41 and £77.

Is this a bit odd, or am I missing something?

And the name of the book is...

It's The complete guide to close-up and macro photography by Paul Harcourt Davies

Looks to me like it's out of print, so will be priced according to demand.

Ooops, didn't realize but it's temporarily out of stock at Still, it may be worth the wait.

That's a different title, unfortunately.

If this is the book

you have a choice between £13.00 to £103.00 from the states or £20.00 from the UK.
Abebooks are excellent to deal with.

Thank you, one and all. I just couldn't understand the disparity in the prices!
