Eusebius update

Long-time readers will be aware that I’ve been engaged, as publisher, in producing the first English translation of Eusebius of Caesarea’s Gospel Problems and Solutions — Quaestiones ad Stephanum et Marinum — and getting it available in printed form.  The long term intention is to make the translation at least freely available online.  But I’ve produced a hardback and paperback, with facing Greek (and Latin, Syriac, Coptic and Arabic) and English pages. 

The book is available from Amazon (hardback, $80; paperback, $45), and if anyone who has bought a copy feels like adding a review, then that would be great!

This evening I’ve set things up so that copies can be ordered through the company website for Chieftain Publishing.  The page is here, and there are Paypal links set up for both paperback and hardback.  There is a slight discount on these, since I don’t have to pay a percentage to Amazon.

There’s also a PDF of some sample pages available for download, so you can see what you’re getting.  You can also “Look Inside” at Amazon.

The book got some more hardback sales in July via Amazon in the US.  But I haven’t promoted it yet.  The big marketing effort comes next week, when all the 850 participants at the Oxford Patristics Conference will get a leaflet in the conference welcome pack.  In addition the book will be on display at the conference, so you can come and browse.  And I’m also taking 20 copies of the paperback, in case people want to give me money there and then!  I wonder if people will?
