Dhrupad book by Ritwik Sanyal & Richard Widdess for sale!

Post by SonaKolivisa » Thu Feb 02, 2012 5:29 pm

Hello everyone...

I'm selling my copy of this major work on the dhrupad tradition. This copy is hardcover, includes dustjacket (which shows only very light wear), tight binding, clean pages without markings or folds. I would classify this copy as somewhere between "very good" and "like new".

It's a pricey book, as you may know. The best price I've seen is on Amazon Marketplace as of today at $139.99.

I'm willing to sell mine for $108. I'll pay the shipping if in the USA. You can pay me with PayPal.

Send me a PM for more details....

I see a copy advertised on boosey.com for $108, which is about as inexpensive as you'll ever see that book go for

Yes correct, but is there any other book available to provide such a detailed info of dhrupad?
I saw in google books and seems fine but yes cost is very high to afford for

I've never seen another book on the subject that comes close to this one. if cost is an issue you can ask your local library to borrow it from another one (inter-library loan).

have you tried googling it to see if there are other copies available? in my experience there's usually at least one for sale at any given time, usually between $105 - $130

well, I wrote Ritwik sanyal ( No reply) and also to Richard Widdess (No reply)-may be will try over telephone.
I wrote to Ashgate and they said that they have stooped the publishing (No stock) and may be i can find from the old book re seller.
I don't know why such a beautiful master work is not available
I am aware of its google preview but allows access to limited pages.
