Law books ain’t cheap

Certain old law books are very, very expensive (like this one).

Certain new law books are also very, very expensive. This book has slipped from its original publication date by about 3 years so far, so there’s no guarantee that it will actually be coming out in November this year, as currently promised. But just look at that price.
£785.
Yes: that’s not a typo. It actually costs £785 for a single volume of a single book.
It has 568 pages. 
That’s £1.38 per page.
Law book prices are just insane sometimes.

  1. Hopefully it's far less: S&M say it's £110 for Volume 1 (so it's now being split into 2 volumes…no word on the price of volume 2), and it's now coming out on 31 December, so it's slipped another month.
    I think this book/books should be referred to as The Mythical Arrowsmith for evermore!
