I just bid on a 19th edition on UK ebay. No idea what they normally go for so I put a token bid of 30 for now.

What's a usual end-price for such a copy?

In Amazon they are from $20 up for used copies. Can you order from the Amazon dealers? I am sure some of them ship out of country. I have a list of used book on line sites I shopped at but now I mostly use Amazon because most the book stores have joined Amazon now so it's fast to shop there and pick the best offer.

I'll take a look on amazon Carl. I can't imagine them being that cheap though.

And overpriced at that.

Last time I noticed (a few years ago I guess), new ones were $69. That was the smaller version. Large version was $79 I think.

You might consider looking around your area for a used book store. The 23rd edition I use at work I paid a grand total of $4 for.

I paid 26$ for mine including S&H. It was a 22nd edition and looked brand new when I received it.

It is also available in PDF format. Can't remember which version I have though.

I recently bought an 11th edition in excellent condition on UK ebay for 1.99, with free postage because it was with some other books. I think I may have got a bargain!

I've got a pdf copy of the 27th edition somewhere around here. I can't remember exactly where I got it from. I will check...
