PLRE for sale
#1
Hello all.

Due to a recent cock-up, I've got a copy of 'The Prosopography of the Later Roman Empire, Vol: 3A (Abandanes - Iyad ibn Ghanm) AD 527-641' for sale if anyone is interested.

Offers over GBP 45 will be considered. As a guide, I believe it sells for between GBP 100 and 200 in the UK. I've just been on Amazon.com and found it at over $400! I don't think that the exchange rate is $8 to the GBP!!

It appears to be brand new, but does not have a dust-cover.

Anyone interested?

Although this referred to the set of 3a and 3b I think, I agree your offer is still very good!

I'm not sure: when I first looked I thought so too, but ...
PLRE I AND PLRE II are both single volumes, and they are both over $400 each!!


Anyway, even if that was the case, I don't think the exchange rate is $4 to the GBP!! :lol:

Is correct.
Vol1 and vol. 2 are (unfortunately) $400 and $445. Vol. 3 is a 2 vol. set at $476, and you are offering half of that set.

Is also correct. :wink:

It depends what you mean: are you after PLRE IIA or the full set? Oxbow no longer have the full set on offer, but I may be open to offers for PLRE IIIA.

Drat, I was hoping for the full set. But I am making an inquiry about any and all of them. Thanks in advance for the info.

Tharts still $300.......so the previous was on sale for between $200 - $400
i.e. £100 - £200.......

I wonder why the varience.....it would seem possible £100($200) for one volumn £200($400) for both?

Quite simple maths...even for me! :wink:
