Seller had no clue what it would sell for. Fact two people were willing to bid that amount is a good thing.

It should be a valid indicator to Cass to do a 2nd publishing upcoming as there is still demand for the book at an obviously inflated price.

Ken, I wish I could find someone here who would sell me a copy for the original price. You are a good man.

Unfortunately in this case, I believe it an example of supply and demand. There currently is no supply, so it demanded the price it did.

I would venture to guess that if those bidding knew a second printing was on it's way, the final bid would have been much closer to the price of that second printing, possibly with the exception of some folks (collectors?) that would pay appropriately for a "First Edition"

Default Copyright Infringement?

I was lucky enough to get a copy from Cass and was thinking that perhaps like other historical reference books that are out of print, Cass could licence the printing of individual books on demand as there are outlets everywhere now.

But looking around the web tonight I came across this site run by a woman in Malmo, Sweden ( http://www.oakleafbooks.se/index.php...formation_id=4 )which is a bit worrying as I doubt Cass sees any money from this unless he's licensed a deal? Perhaps you guys who have contact with him could ask.



Given the dispatch time, on trade paper and " Available (On Demand)" it would seem she is printing them as ordered from a digital copy unless I've misunderstood and she has physical copies from the first print.

If not , then I don't like seeing anyone raking in money off of Cass's hard won skills and effort .

Phil

Default Copyright violation!

Thank you, Phil, for alerting me about copyright violation! I am working on the 2nd edition of my book "Any impossibility in shaping metal". It should be available to readers as soon as possible, I am adding more chapters.

Susan Eklow is engaged in piracy. No permission was given to her to copy and sell the book.

US Copyright law provided a punishment :

If willful infringement for commercial advantage and private financial gain is proved, fines of up to $100,000 and/or two years’ imprisonment, or both. (as of March 1, 1989).

Cass,

Glad to be of help and I look forward to seeing the completed 2nd Edition. Let's hope a shot across her bows will deter her from doing it again.

The bad news is that it just occurred to me while writing this reply to check something else and unfortunately you are not alone Cass, Bill Longyard's English Wheel book is also advertised.



Regards

Phil

This company has a Facebook page. Might be interesting to contact them publicly about this issue.

Apparently a quite sloppy operation. Here are comments from the Facebook page:

Where is my book????? You are constantly ignoring me!! You took my money and haven't sent the book that makes you nothing more than a thief! Whay an appalling business you run!!!!!!


You are ILLEGALLY stating to sell a book by me for which I'm sure you have no content because it has not been released. Request immediate removal from ALL of your sources.

Rosie Hurst Yes word may be spreading but your delivery time is appalling. The lack of communication with estimated delivery times is a common courtesy you are lacking and ignoring emails is just plain rude.

Steve Dyson I have to agree I have been waiting over a month for delivery and have had no reply to my complaint.

Several of Bills books are offered. I'm wondering if the original publishers of these books made the books available for re-print. Maybe a clause buried somewhere in the small print of the contract.

Without seeing the dust jacket I'm guessing she has a book that I own the copyright on. I see a few others that some of my friends have written on the list. I am contacting those folks as we speak.

Thanks,

Keith
