Interesting. I note that the side panel says "Customers also bought..." so I imagine someone may have actually paid the full price.

On a related note, the same book is available as part of a 2 volume package for $100 less than buying it individually:

At least the monthly payments are in line with dovebook's full price.....

Logos must have meant "31.00" and that extra "0" found its way between the "3" and the "1." Wink

I doubt that.  I've noticed that when other collections that have been decoupled the price for a single volume can be outrageous.

And it shows the value of looking HARD through the PrePubs for the things you want!  This 2 book collection was sold on Prepub at $109.95 last December!

Alright George, If Logos is out of their ever-lovin' gourd, so am I.  Stick out tongue But that was never in doubt. I bought these from Logos at their Pre-Pub price.And I intend to get all the Brill titles offered in Logos.

The reason it is so "expensive" is due to the Publisher. Brill is always higher but usually the original publisher of these specific academic & scholarly titles. When you see "Dove" think sub-licensed for paperback publishing only. If you want this in Logos, Dove can not provide it.  And Logos probably does not have the freedom to offer these cheap any more than the Zondervan titles.

It isn't a Brill publication.  It's an SBL reprint.

edit: As usual, you are right George. I pulled it up in my library and it says SBL is the publisher. Could it be one bought the other's rights?

Funny how the product page has this description:

Product Details

  • Title: The Greek and Hebrew Bible: Collected Essays on the Septuagint
  • Author: Emanuel Tov
  • Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 574

It looks as though we're both right.  It's a Brill / SBL Reprint

Looks like this price came from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/9004113096. We'll reevaluate it.

Does that mean if I can find cheaper list prices, Logos might "re-evaluate" the other Brill collections and adjust prices? Wink

You know any money I save on Brill collections will only get spent on more Logos resources.

Brill is typically expensive. SBL actually gives away some resources. How about we get these resources listed with SBL pricings? Smile

Sometimes Amazon publishes a truly Amazonian price.  This must be one of the times.  Here is another listing for comparison

Such a deal I thought they would sell it as an impulse item....Surprise

Does Logos listen to feedback or what? Logos, you're great!
