Dear All,

I have just been chasing up Harrison's "Field Guide to the Birds of Sri Lanka" for someone else and have been mind-boggled at the difference in prices. The publisher, Oxford University Press, lists it for AUD 160, AbeBooks, from around AUD 75 up and a bookshop in Sri Lanka, around AUD 17.

I wonder if any one on the list can explain this price discrepancy, apart from the fact that we always seem to be hammered on prices in Australia), I would be mightily obliged.
