MG MGA - Clausager Original MGA
I have been trying to track down a reasonably priced copy but have had no luck. Does anyone have an extra copy they might want to sell for less than a kings ransom?
|Check out Abbe Books on-line. They have book sellers from all over the world and I have found used books in very good condition for a fraction of the new book price. Good luck! Cheers!|
|Thanks Robert. They have it for only $9.32. Now if only I could read German I would be all set! The English version is $67.38. Better than most others I have seen but still a bit pricey.|
|Brown and Gammons here in the UK has it listed at £16.99 ($25) plus postage.|
|Forgot the link:|
|The B&G copy is possibly the soft cover version. The hard bound version would probably cost more.|

Spot on. I just checked with them, it is the soft cover.
|master cylinder.uk is listing them at|
|brakesee years ago I only paid|

I found a cpoy at (allmotorworks.com) for $40.00! The shipping adds considerably to the total cost but it's still half what I found elsewhere....about $65.00. I can't believe this book as gone up so much. I paid $28.00 at a car show not that many years ago. Wish I had bought all of them....had I known. Anyway, maybe this will get you a copy at a more reasonable price. Good luck!
Bad link. Try this one instead-
(spebarthelemy.com). Good luck!
|They seem to come up on ebay uk quite regularly and don't go for the exhorbitant prices mentioned above .|
Go to http://www.bookfinder.com/search/?ac=sl&st=sl&qi=wHK2JVXVxfGKJHVejK1fputeVv8_9626106697_1:27:139&bq=author%3Danders%2520ditlev%2520clausager%26title%3Doriginal%2520mga . You'll find new paperbound editions for $25 including shipping and hardbound volumes for about twice that.
|Correction: ecampus.com is shown on the bookfinder.com site to have the hard cover edition for $31 including shipping. That's more like it!|
|The problem is when you go to ecampus.com they have no stock. They say they will order it, but it out of print.|

|Got it from Brown and Gammons. 17 pounds or about $26 plus shipping. |
Beats $100 I have seen on Amazon for a used book. Thanks for your help.
|Yes, I see the problem now, Mick. I did notice that amazon.ca is accepting pre-orders for the book now, something that they do only pre-publication, which suggests that the book will be soon reprinted. We can only hope, since sellers holding the small remaining stock are asking outrageous prices. |
|I've just checked my copy. Softback version published by Motorbooks in 2003.|
I still have the payment slip inside - bought in 2004 from an Abebooks supplier in the US for £7.50 - shipping was an extra £2.50. Seems like a bargain now.
I would wait for the reprint - it's a great book, but not worth £100.00
