See below the description from the dustwrapper flap.
This copy has clearly been sitting in a pile of smaller books on someone’s coffee-table for a considerable time, as only part of the dustwrapper pictures on the front and rear covers display their original colours. However, the book’s contents, and its binding, are in very good condition.
Despite The Website That Is Intent on World Domination claiming that the book is still available at £40.00 new (though stating ‘usually dispatched within 2 to 4 weeks’, which implies they do not themselves hold any stock), the publisher’s website does not mention the book at all. We take this to mean that the book is in fact out of print. The lavish production standards and the heavyweight glazed paper used to reproduce the many colour photos mean that it is almost inconceivable the book would be reprinted in this age of austerity.
Beware – this is a heavy book and would cost a good deal to send abroad. If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will quote a price for postage.
