    On a separate comment. Do Folio Society books actually go out of print? They just released a copy of The Road and they have Something Wicked This Way Comes as well. I would like them both however they are a little costly right now and charge about $38 for shipping. I would prefer to wait and see if the price(s) go down or see if I can receive a coupon or discount.

    Thanks!
    Yes, they do go out of print, and become unavailable for ordering. There are a couple of books like that that I wouldn’t mind having, but they’re no longer available, unfortunately. I ordered THE ROAD this morning and didn’t hesitate, just for that reason…I need this book, and any guess as to how long it will stay in print is just speculation, and I didn’t want to gamble on this one. Worse, the good ones rarely come up on the aftermarket, for whatever reason.

    By the way, I was only charged $18 for shipping (still very high, but not $38 high), so make sure you’re on the correct site for your region, and have selected the standard shipping, not Priority.

It's a two book slipcased set consisting of Treasure Island by R. L. Stevenson and Tales From King Arthur-This book was edited by Andrew Lang. The set was published in 2003 by Wordsworth Editions. When I went to the cashier she said "There wasn't a price?" and I replied that I hadn't seen a price. The cashier rang in a price, items were on sale today and I paid .81 cents for this nice two book slipcased set. When I made it home I cleaned the books and double checked the condition and I only see one minor scuff on the slipcase. BOO YEAH!!

    Nice find! I always remember the Admiral Benbow Inn from Treasure Island. https://study.com/academy/lesson/the...re-island.html
