Horrocks' Book on the History of the Greek Language (2nd ed)

Postby aloimonon » Mon Feb 08, 2010 1:48 am

Wow, did anyone else notice that the paperback has mysteriously gone absent? This query concerns Geoffrey Horrocks' _Greek: A History of the Language and its Speakers_, second edition. I had pre-ordered the paperback for less than 30 USD, but now the paperback is no longer available, and only the hardcover is available at ~171USD.

Paperback (no longer available):
http://www.amazon.com/Greek-Geoffrey-Ho ... 837&sr=8-6

Hardcover:
http://www.amazon.com/Greek-History-Lan ... 837&sr=8-1

Is this normal practice? Is anyone else seeing red as much as I am? :evil:
ἀλλ' ἔγωγε ἐξ αὐτῶν τούτων μᾶλλον αὐτὸν τεθαύμακα, ὅτι ἔν τε ἀλλοκότοις καὶ ἐν ἐξαισίοις πράγμασι αὐτός τε διεγένετο καὶ τὴν ἀρχὴν διεσώσατο. Dio LXXII 36.3
