The High Cost of Books

I happened to be reading a 1987 review of a book on renaissance literature published by Columbia University Press, and I really enjoyed this comment from the reviewer:
Because these are such rich and insightful pieces and deal with so many major texts from the Renaissance, one must regret that the high price of the volume will put it out of reach for many readers and hope that the Press will decide to issue it in a less expensive paperback version. 
The price listed was $32.50.
