Yes, I think HC did themselves no favours by putting the price up so high. Even just before publication it was going to be GBP 300 and at the last minute they squeezed another GBP 50. It really is a lovely book (and I'm very happy to have my '#3'), but in retrospect it was just too expensive and they printed way too many copies. I wonder how they will distribute the remainder once the web sales completely dry up? If they are still in the 200-300 range after a year I think it is safe to say that there is little chance of them ever selling the remainder of the copies without resorting to some really aggressive discounting (say 30-40%). I'm wondering if they will end up selling in bulk to other distributors (as I think has happened in the past with some of the super-deluxes).
