Getting a copy of a Syriac scientific manuscript

I have found that the French National Library want $130 for a duplicate of a monochrome microfilm and putting it onto CDROM.  Am I the only one rather astonished at the prices that are being charged these days for low quality stuff?

    No Roger, I too am astonished. It’s ludicrous the prices they charge – even books as well. What used to be bought for a handful of dollars now costs hundreds.

    A fistful of dollars was not so arduous. It makes me wonder how many other people are being ripped off. After all, just how much does a microfilm scanner cost, I wonder?
