Highlight of the Week

Today, I ordered a copy of Lampe’s Patristic Greek Lexicon.

Used of course.

But this is the clincher.

Both Eisenbrauns and Amazon are selling Lampe for $292. And used copies are about $260-ish.

I paid less than that. A lot less.

You see, like a number of obscure/older books, there are a couple different Amazon listings for it. And every once in a while, someone uploads a copy to one of the other listings – one that’s not linked to the main page. These other pages tend to be harder to find too.

It just so happened that someone listed a used copy of Lampe on one of these pages.

For $51.

It was a good day.

  1. Let’s hope the vendor doesn’t read this post before shipping your book. Otherwise it might be reported “damaged” or “lost in shipping” and then reappear for $260.
