EPD 18th ed.
The 18th edition of the EPD seems to be almost out. Amazon tells me that it will be dispatched within 2-3 weeks. The CUP price is 31.10 GBP. Amazon offers it for 23.93 GBP.
On the webpages of CUP it says: "Published 06 October 2011". If I were to buy it from CUP they would add 3.99 VAT and 7.00 delivery charges. That's a total of 42.09 - scandalous! If I buy it from Amazon UK the grand total (including postage, packing and VAT) is 30.94. I think I wait till I can buy it for 30 pounds.
