I think the $5 price to the UK is clearly a mistake and expect to get an email saying please pay the real shipping cost, or we will cancel your order.

You may find that getting someone in the UK to forward the item to you is more expensive than just getting it sent to Germany.

Shipping to the UK is now also $50.

Shipping to England is apparently only $5.

How can that be? Shipping to Texas was $6

Trotter, how much was your shipping?
When your get yours, can you share how much it weight and how well the packaging was?

I'd be more than willing to order and forward to others, but it would ultimately depend on what the package weight was in order to determine if that is even a viable option vs just ordering and paying the $50 international shipping.

Still trying to find a weekend that works for me to drive over and see the exhibit so holding off ordering the Manuscript in the hopes I can just pick it up in person.

Based on the dimensions given for the book, and weighing a few similar titles, I would say that the book is more than two pounds, likely three - so >3 pounds including packing materials. A USPS airmail package for 3 pounds to the UK is $43 (retail) as an example.

I had a very similar result at £38. Working on the principle of the book weighing around 1.2 - 1.3KG.

I commented on twitter about the price but I meant it as it stood for me personally, not that the shipping was terrible. I hope that there are still a few for sale at years end when all my current orders have been sorted. I look forward to seeing some images from you lot

People like a nice looking book initially. Most won’t know they’re inaccurate until bought ?

Shipping to Australia is $75 which seems insane considering the book costs $60.

Guess that’s standard USPS pricing given weight and dimensions. ?
