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.
It was a good day.
