Why is RĂ©gine Pernoud's Women in the Days of the Cathedrals not in print!? :hissy

To oppress you. :fyi:

Ignatius seems to recycle their backlist every now and then, so it could reappear one of these days or years.

My guess is that it is probably the same reason every other book goes out of print: because sales aren't big enough to justify the expense of printing it.

Oh wait....this isn't really a question is it? :scratch:

The book is available in French - only five copies left.

Thanks. However, I sadly don't really read French. I should practise it, I know, but I think with this book, I'll go for a language I can actually understand well. :D

Actually, good news (for me) and bad news (also for me - wrt to my bank balance). I'd found a used copy that was on the dear side, but still sort of OK. However, the seller will not ship internationally. Then I checked again and found another seller that sold the book used at the same price and who would sell internationally!!! At this stage, I had pretty much convinced myself that the book is essential reading and that it might slip away altogether. So, going against better financial judgment, I ordered it!!! At least the exchange rate is quite good!
