I find my best deals on books are found through occasional and random searches on bookfinder.
Sorry dude, I can't help ya regarding thrifty book-deals ... I usually pay through the nostrils via ABE Books
I search Ebay both under the general book category for coins, as well as books and publications section in coins.
Other hints? Amazon can have some good books, and don't forget other country Amazon's are not connected to Amazon.com, so checking amazon.ca or amazon.co.uk can lead to some good prices as well.
Let's see, oh and Scott Semans has a good book list. He is www.coincoin.com.
Here's the link. I didn't post it yesterday because an auction was ending at 5 and I had a bid in for the Meshorer Nabataean Coins.
But this guy only does mail bids - email and phone is good too. It's old-fashioned, but what can you do if there's a book you want?
I haven't found out yet whether I won.
www.abebooks.com ... Always found what i needed ;-) and if any of you is looking for auction catalogues, please PM me. i got over 3000 in stock (please note i do live in Belgium, shipping to the US can be expensive !)
Nabataean Coins. I've got an email out to Fred to verify. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Wow ! Started at $20 ? Great price for a Meshorer ! Happy for you, John !
It's about what I expected, after the buyer's fee and s/h. The last available one (that I know of) sold on vcoins for $90. In fact, I was worried that a $100 bid was too low, but I'm not made out of money. Still, I'm not dancing a jig yet - I'll save that for when I've got it in hand.
Congrats on the new/old books, JA => awesome score, my friend!!
Now just my luck, it'll get lost in the mail.
You did put my address on it, right ?
I thought you had that book, or am I mixed up? (Don't answer that.)
Catalogue of the Greek Coins of Arabia, Mesopotamia, and Persia in the Royal British Museum. There's a decent section on Nabataeans there, and a bucket-full of other interesting coins and descriptions.
Ouf ! This calls for a link...
