FYI, Amazon has a reprint of The Boy Electrician! http://www.amazon.com/The-Boy-Electrician-Alfred-Morgan/dp/1626549818
The comments are pretty consistent with my experience.  Mine is the seventh printing in 1957.  I never noticed it was written in 1913 - over 100 years old now.

There are some scanned copies on the net including google books.  Here's one:

At the moment I've got a copy of the fifth edition of 'Electronics: A Systems Approach' by Neil Storey. Could anyone tell me if 'The Art of Electronics' is a sensible addition to this or is it an overkill?  :-//

Half an hour ago another email: Shipped!

If life in the Netherlands is as dead as life in Germany over Easter you have my sympathies. The secret is to save jobs that need to be done for periods like this (assuming the work does not generate too much noise.

Chocolate helps. :)

I was beginning to feel left out. Amazon reduced delivery date to 16/04 and then 09/04 shortly after which is what I have been expecting so far. Just got an email saying they have despatched it and I can expect delivery on Thursday, which means I will get it tomorrow as I always seem to get stuff a day early from amazons estimates.

I just buy it on amazon Italy for € 48 ($ 51). It seems that prices are falling, but versions of the second edition are more expensive than the third ...

Amazon seems to be selling it for much less in Europe than the US. Here it is $110 on Amazon (currently = 102 Euros).

For US residents - the cheapest I could find at the time I purchased was from Bookdepository.com for $82 shipped.  Looks like they've upped the price to $88 now though.

Blimey, thats only £35! Does that include VAT/Sales Tax, or is Italy like the UK with no VAT on books?

What happened to EU harmonization and the common market?

Now you're just being annoying :)

Now that we have a live camera again, it is interesting to note the pride of place where Dave has placed the book.  ::)
