What seems strange to me is the inclusion of:

Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament: The Books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther

  • Author: C. F. Keil and Franz Delitzsch

This book is already pubvlished in Logos, so why include it in a community pricing product, this all seems very strange to me.

Looking at => Keil and Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament (COT) (10 vols.) noticed: "1996 revised edition from Hendrickson"

Looking at => Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament: The Books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther noticed T&T Clark publication in 1873.

Agreed. I can think of about five other collections offered in Community Pricing where the same material is offered across various collection and some published materials in others. To be honest, it does not make sense to me.

True... so we hide one & the rest are still a great value...

Logos has made available the Classic Commentaries and Studies on Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther Upgrade (17 vols.)

with this difference:

The Classic Commentaries and Studies on Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther Upgrade (17 vols.) contains all the same works as Classic Commentaries and Studies on Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther (18 vols.) minus Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament: The Books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther by C. F. Keil and F. Delitzsch. That volume can be purchased separately in the Keil and Delitzsch Commentary on the Old Testament (COT) (10 vols.).

 Paul, finally I am understanding what Logos is doing with duplicates across the classic commentaries? Thanks for drawing my attention to this. Regards

I noticed this too, and it struck me as being a little odd.  When I saw the word upgrade, this is not what I expected.  I was wondering how could this collection be called an "upgrade" if the books in the collection are the same books in the original collection, AND it has less books in the collection?  For me, this  is not an "upgrade."

 There are several ways to look at this.  Because I am cynical in nature, it helps Logos' bottom line.  It can also be said that it helps Logos' users to get more for the money.

I think they mean it's an upgrade from the single volume of K&D for users that already have that. I.E. you have one volume and are upgrading by buying the 17 volumes that you don't already have.

If this is the case, and it could be the case, then it is not an "Classic Commentaries and Studies on Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther" upgrade.  The way Logos has used the word "upgrade" before in its title was to indicate what series is being upgraded.  This is not the case here.
