Need a copy of Mackay's Anatomy of the Ship Bounty

Recommended Posts

I have ordered several "used" books from Amazon. Books either too expensive or not in existence anymore.

Can't be any happier. I've got $80 dollars books for $4. You wouldn't believe the books I've got for around 4-5 dlls, and they are like new. Sometimes the shipping is even higher than the cost of the book itself, but who cares? Still great deals.

The only downside for me is some sellers won't post their books to Australia for some strange reason. 

Years ago I talked with Dave Roach from Pier Books about this and he said that the cost of shipping outside the US can be so expensive that the purchase becomes a total loss.  This I can understand.  Years ago when I worked in the shipping dept we had to ship a 2lb package to a facility outside of Melbourne.  They were not happy.  The part was $50 the shipping cost was around $150 if my memory serves me right.  It is always shipping that can be a killer depending on the weight and location.
