A few months ago, I had a brief correspondence with someone on the list =
who suggested my search for David Diringer's The Alphabet (Munshiram =
Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.) would probably end up with me spending =
about $200.00 for the out-of-print book.

Even though I have a love/hate relationship with Barnes & Noble =
bookstores, I did call and place an order for the book about two months =
ago. I got a call last week that the book was in. The price was $47.50 =
minus B&N's usual 10% off hardcovers. The book isn't in perfect =
condition - no dust jacket, endsheets and cover a bit beaten up, (smells =
a bit) but at least it was available.

Anyone interested in the book might want to try B&N to see if there are =
more copies available.

Regards,
MCE
