Books purchased from the online sites are now less expensive as they have considerably lowered their prices.  Before they did this, I had copies printed in China for the Australian market. Their quality is excellent. Wholesale they are $50 for the hardback and $35 for the paperback plus $12.70 postage for one book. The retailers of course put on their own markup. If you wish to order from me then go to the Contact page otherwise please contact the retailers directly.
