Brill’s publications have always been well received by scholars in the past and it is at their suggestion that some of the more interesting titles of recent year be made available in a cheaper form. Our authors have been asked to select a first list of such titles that would be of direct use to their colleagues and students. The books are produced ‘on demand’ but with the fine quality of production associated with Brill: they are ready for dispatch within a few days of ordering and will be available for as long as there is a single customer for them. We are sure that established scholars will be interested: why not try them out yourself.
