Amazon Deal To Reprint Rare Books

Posted by admin on Jul 22, 2009

Online retailer Amazon is teaming up with the University of Michigan to provide reprints of 400,000 rare, out-of-print and out-of-copyright books.

The books from the university’s library are in more than 200 languages from Acoli to Zulu and include a 1898 book on nursing by Florence Nightingale.

Amazon’s Book Surge unit will print the books in soft-cover editions at prices from $10(£6) to $45.

It comes as the Ann Arbor college seeks to digitise its book collection. Financial details of the tie-up arrangement have not been revealed.
