Brian Buckland - ENGINE SECTION SUPPLEMENT

PostPost by: gherlt » Tue Oct 08, 2019 8:48 am

Hi all,
the engine section supplement for the 1st edition ringbinder is finally available.

Price is
shipping to UK (mainland): 22 GBP
shipping to Germany (mainland): 22 €
shipping to Europe (mainland): 24 €
shipping to islands & Rest of World: 27€

How to order:
Please give me an email by PM or send an email to [email protected]" target="_blank,
then you will get an order confirmation with more details.
Odd, but as my company is German a lot of customer rights legislation applies and I have to comply. The company has to inform you of all legal stuff before you place an order.

Thanks !

Guillermo

I am considering have the section printed as a softbinded standalone book by ingramSpark and/or Amazon.
80gr paper, no holes ....

Final price would something like 33/35 USD, incl shipping for US (mainland).
Australia seems to be the same price, although it is not clear: it states $ and not AU$/AUD (would make a big difference).
A bit cheaper, also faster shipping.

How would be that ?

At present you can buy it only from my company (Grafos Verlag GmbH) , either you send me a PM or email to [email protected].

Delivering to the Susan, Club Lotus and RD Enterprise will be subject to the evolution of Brexit and to an affordable shipping possibility to the US.

Good news !

A member showed me that the in 2019 discontinued "book shipping worldwide" postal service has a successor ! It is even tracked and signed for. No mention of transit times, though.
So Gentlemen,

Prices ROW: 27€ !

How about making a digital copy available for self-printing and insertion into our existing 1st editions?
Cheers,

Hi- since I have a bound version of the original book, I would be happy to be able to buy a bound book engine supplement via RD Enterprises here in the US-thanks for considering it.

Hello Greg,
on my personal "end user" view, understandable.
But I paid Brian Buckland royalties and I have to get those back somehow.
I need to sell 500 books/ringbinders to break even (at current sell rate that will be 2025).
In Engine Section Supplements I would need to sell nearly 2000 of them.

Hello Mark,
I am still looking into it, although most probably it will be sold directly.

Who'd be a publisher eh!

That does seem to be a huge number to shift - and that's just to break even :( Are there that number of Elan owner customers out there?

I have not done this to make money on it. Brian's book needed to be published properly, to stop speculation prices and to disseminate this knowledge.
Other classic car communities would kill to have a book like this on their car .

Hi Guillermo,
If it proves too much of a hassle then I will probably just get an updated ringbinder version with engine supplement here via RD . I know we all appreciate your efforts.
Thanks, Mark
