Blowflies of Fennoscandia

For those of you who have been looking for a copy of Blowflies (Diptera, Calliphoridae) of Fennoscandia and Denmark there is now an opportunity to buy it secondhand on Amazon for £1104 (price converted from U.S. dollars).
I will have to wait for the long awaited 2nd Edition or reprint as that is a little too expensive for me!

Re: Blowflies of Fennoscandia

I had this on my want list on ABE books for some time, and several copies come and went at a much higher price than the one above, however a mint copy came up at much less, so I snapped it up. Be patient.

Maybe bring this to Brill's attention, I believe they may be considering print on demand for this book

Re: Blowflies of Fennoscandia

I spoke to Ian Johnson (Pemberley Books) about this in Bristol, and he said he was intending to contact Brill about the need for a re-print.

Re: Blowflies of Fennoscandia

I've e-mailed Brill today to point out the demand for this to be re-printed or made available elecronically. Perhaps if lots of us do it they'll realise that there's money to be made for very little effort on their part. http://www.brill.com/contact.
