I have had this book on order from Amazon.com for almost two months now. This seems unusual as I have generally had excellent service from them. I know the book is in print as I saw a copy in a photo shop in Manchester England when I was there in May. Their price was about 70 BP, which is inline with the $117 price from PDQ. Now I wonder if Amazon.com has made a mistake in their pricing and they can't deliver for $35. Vahan - -----Original Message----- The other day I received a solicitation in the mail from P.D.Q. Distribution, the folks who distribute Leica Fotographie, for a new book, Leica In Colour by Paul-Henry van Hasbroeck. Selling price is $117.50 US. The next day I looked for the same book at Amazon.com. Prepublication price is $50.00, discounted by Amazon to $35.00 US plus shipping. Am I missing something? Why the huge difference in price? Is the edition from P.D.Q different in any substantial way (read "different enough to justify $67.50 more") from the edition Amazon is selling? Both are hardcover with no other explanation as to particulars concerning the edition.
