If you have been following our
newsletter over this past summer, then you may know that we have had
a comedy of errors in getting our new books printed. And it
hasn't been that funny either!
Our latest debacle is that our revised edition
of The Shaping of a Nation - Blackline Maps of American
History arrived with the wrong cover. Now when I say
the wrong cover, I do not mean that the text or graphics are
incorrect. It is the finish on the book that is wrong.
This newly revised 2007 edition was meant to be a slick gloss cover
that would coordinate with the other map books that we carry, but a
mistake was made at the printing manufacturer and it arrived with a
matte (or dull) finish.
In the end, we decided that it was important
enough for us to have the books reprinted with the correct covers.
this mean for you? We are slashing prices dramatically
to get these misprinted books out of our warehouse and into the hands of those
that appreciate a GREAT DEAL. These books are in perfect,
Here is our offer... we will give you a
free 128 page book of
Blackline Maps of American History when you purchase the
CD-ROM of the same title.
Included in this book are...
31 historical maps
31 unlabeled maps
50 state maps and
1 blank map of the entire United States
A total of 113 maps that you can use while
studying American history. By the way, the Blackline Maps
of American History CD-ROM has been revised as well (as of last
month) to match the contents of this book, so you can print out
multiple copies of the book from the CD-ROM for multiple students
within your family.
Do you already own the revised American maps CD
or simply prefer to use the book as a consumable without the
reproducible CD-ROM? We are selling
copies of this book - original retail price before
revision was $24.95; revised price will be $29.95 -
for just $5.00 plus shipping and
handling. At this price, you can purchase 5 for the original
price of a single copy. Stock up on
these for your school, classroom or co-op.
And while we're at it, we decided to put our
other American history books and products on sale as well. If
you are studying American history this year, this is a great time to
stock up on some of these resources. I can not foresee that
the prices will be any lower later on in the year.
This American history sale will last through
next Tuesday, September 18th!

nothing wrong with this book in terms of content, text or
graphics. The finish of the cover is matte (dull finish)
instead of gloss.

well put some of our other American history products on sale
