Non-Profit Initiative
     I've seen similar reproductions of ancient manuals that are selling for as high as USD$300.00 or over! Furthermore, these are black-and-white scans, and I didn't see any additional work done to restore the works or images.  

     I've designed this replica as a low to non-profit initiative, hence the low price of only $12.90. Your purchase will help to cover only the cost of printing , restoration, and help to fund future acquisitions so that we can produce & replicate more valuable antique books at an economical price for preservation & promotion of history.
