For some reason there is always a very large variance in the prices of books across the internet, even amongst the new editions. I sometimes wonder if it has something to do with local availability and how exotic the title might be perceived in some parts of the world (HANZAB is a good example). I needed to buy a number of shorebird books while studying at University so I wasn't able to afford new versions of all the books I selected. As a consequence my copy of "Shorebirds and Identification Guide" was a second-hand item in excellent condition. You will find that in your searches for a particular title that there will be various quality options from different vendors and it is prudent to go with those that give the clearest descriptions. I have looked on Amazon for a range of new and used options for my textbooks at times, but found the best place to search for new and used books was the following URL:

The descriptions at this site give a number of standard descriptions for easy comparison between the various offerings and a bookseller rating to give you some idea of the quality of service you can expect. The best attribute of the site is that it puts you in touch with thousands of second-hand booksellers worldwide and places excellent volumes within the reach of those of us who might not otherwise be able to afford them.

Happy book hunting
