I'm excited to have it in my Logos library.

And look on the bright side; it's Brill's only success story at present:

It is sad to see how little progression these resources have made but I guess the price of most of these Brill resources is too much for most people. Brill's business model would be interesting to study.

This review is for The Brill Dictionary of Ancient Greek instead. Montanari, not Beekes.

It's not up for pre-pub yet, but I'm really hoping it gets into the Logos format.

Their business model is to publish for libraries, not for individuals.

What I mean is that I would like to see the behind-the-scenes strategies for making money. Perhaps even my question shows my ignorance of their business.

Just popping the thread back up.

But the Brill world is a good question. I like western archaeology, which often translates to national monuments, and book/gift shops. My favorite (Salinas) has the usual picture books, and some broad-coverage books. But the detailed books with the 'good stuff' is $100 a pop. And so, the visitors are out of the question, but Amazon covers.  I was also reading another on Chaco/Salt-River, pricey and library-sourced, as Mark notes.

My impression is the pricey ones exist to support the academic world. Publish or else. Share info. But only libraries really provide the market.  Journal subscriptions are probably the exception to the rule.
