19th August, 1997
For the Aussies on this list!
I was interested in the exchange about copies of Rahlf's Septuaginta, and
the prices you quoted: $30 for pocket size and $52 or so for the 2 volume.

Yesterday I went hunting at 2 large Sydney bookstores, which only had the
pocket size edition at $99 Australian. I hate to think what the 2 volume
edition would cost.

Today an Australian dollar is about 73 cents American.

I did a comparison of prices for books from Amazon and our Kooring book
store. Mostly, we couldn't get the books cheaper if we bought from Amazon,
but there were some notable exceptions [e.g. the LXX]
