For all those interested, the up to date 7th edition of Coggers Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia is due for release in March. Available through CSIRO for $150. My last post regarding this was deleted?

Ordered my copy last week and added the info to Stephens post as it seemed topical. Apparently it wasn't welcome there and obviously required its own thread.

Good to know, seeing as older versions are about $400

It's been out of print for ages and for a long time the roumers were that it wasn't going to be revised. That pushed the prices up on existing copies considerably.
I don't doubt there are collectors who want every edition too. But for the most part people just wanted a copy and the supply vs demand meant they were selling for good money.
I'm hearing lots of people are ordering two copies in the hope that once again there will be a limited printing life and they will increase in value again.
I ordered rev 7 last year. $150 is a bargain for such a book! Just waiting for it to be released :)

I ordered mine through csiro and then was informed that if you order through andrew isles they get signed.
Trent some people order 2 books so they have a shelf copy and field copy not just in hope the price will go up.
I wish I had bought 2 copies of Rick shines natural history of snakes with the pygopod cover at 35 bucks apparently people have been willing to pay 600 for it.

zeppelin. The older editions vary in price 5-6 being the most expensive with the others ranging from original purchase price to 250-300

I don't doubt that. I considered it myself, but cant see the time when I would lug it out on a trip or into the field. Most of my books stay in good condition, except some I scribble notes in. It might be worth making a Cogger my new sightings guide to scribble dates and locations in though.... The people I was mentioning before  specifically noted the fact that they expect it will be the last edition and that they were buying the second copy as an investment.

I recall Scott selling a 6th edition on here for $495 http://www.pilbarapythons.com/trueblue/index.php?topic=1829.msg21791#msg21791
