The 32-Gun Frigate Essex (Anatomy of the Ship)

Please what makes this book so expensive? A long time a go I put off buying it a big mistake, just ordered (New 2005 edition) it for a hefty price but satisfied. The book is by Portia A Takakjian.

I think the price is dictated by demand. I imagine the printing runs of these were fairly limited. I paid $45 for my copy a year ago. I see you can pick up a copy for $40 now. Not too pricey in my opinion for what you get.

I too have noticed bizarre fluctuations in the price of the anatomy of the ship books being sold online. I think you have to adopt the strategy of waiting and watching, keep going back to your online book resource and check the price as it fluctuates over time, and this will give you a better picture of the "going market rate". Clearly there is a species of mental delusion that grips some selllers and they believe they have a treasure of incalculable value when in fact they are selling commonplace stuff that should go for about $20.
