A last (?) word on the subject of pricing, I've just checked the  
current Kesva catalogue (http://www.kesva.co.uk/index.php?id=55), and  
find that they're charging £18.99 for their An Testament Nowydh.

This is £3.04 more expensive (and with no discount offered that I  
could see) than the £15.95 asked for the UCR Testament Noweth, yet  
Mary claims that,

Eddie (a lot puzzled)

ps. I note pari passu that even in English publishing, with its much  
larger economies of scale, £15.95 would be a fair price for a good  
quality hard-bound book. In a minority market like Cornish, it's  
outstanding value for money!
