    Fw: [?? Probable Spam] [rete] Astrolabes at Greenwich
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2008 Dec 15, 15:00 -0000

    On the subject of the forthcoming publication, by OUP (Oxford University
    Press), of "Sextants at Greenwich", by Willem Morzer-Bruns and Richard Dunn,
    at the eye-watering price of �120-
    Perhaps we just have to wait a few years until it gets classified as a
    "remaindered" book, if a lesson can be drawn from the snippet below, sent to
    other mailing lists by William Tobin.
    If OUP had priced that Astrolabes book more reasonably in the first place, 
    perhaps they wouldn't have copies left now, that need to be "remaindered".
    contact George Huxtable, now at george@hux.me.uk
    or at +44 1865 820222 (from UK, 01865 820222)
    or at 1 Sandy Lane, Southmoor, Abingdon, Oxon OX13 5HX, UK.
