An Unexpected Bargain

I have been checking Amazon every day since June, hoping to find a "good" or better copy of "Conway's All the World's Fighting Ships 1860-1905" for less than $80.00 US. Tonight I bought one online for $25.00. The next lowest price was $90.00.  Persistence pays off, sometimes! Now to go sit by the mailbox waiting, like I did at the age of four:-)

  1. Hi Steve,

    You will absolutely love this when it arrives - it is the same story over here as to cost. I was lucky enough to pick up a copy for £20 and thanked the maker for that! The two follow on volumes were more expensive though!

    Enjoy!

    All the best,

    DC

  3. I was very lucky and bought each of the Conway books as they were published ... and they are well-thumbed!

    I had not realised how much they were selling for now. I think that you did well to get hold of a copy at the price you did.

    All the best,

    Bob
