Any recommendations on books that are worth picking up? Thanks anons
>>
why is the checkout through something called wileypay?
cant find shit about it
>>
I know this press has good but stuff but the UI is so fucking aids I can't find them
>>
>>20560689
Not sure but last time I ordered from them I got directed to some page called Wiley something and had to pay in £ because I was in EU. Books arrived perfectly fine

That's what they use as their European storefront (or whatever you wanna call it). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiley_(publisher)
>>
>>20560452
They have the complete works of Kierkegaard and Jung so if you're interested in philosophy or psychoanalysis check those out. They also have some nice art books, I bought the John Singer Sargent one for someone as a gift and they greatly enjoyed it.
>>
>>20560452
Why buy new book when I could just go on ebay and buy used copy for $5 or less? It's just ink on paper. If you are concerned about scribblings on the page, msg the seller and ask before you buy it.
>>

Wiley are a European publisher.
they mostly deal in scientific journals and various academic literature.
>>
stop posting your fucking ads here you retard. i bet some of these idiots already fell for it
>>
>>20561753
The reason I asked was because their browsing functionality sucks. High quality books with incredible illustrations are mixed up with old print-on-demand books. You can’t sort by price, hell, you can’t even to view the price in the first place unless you open up the book in a new tab. In short, the site is shit but they undoubtedly have some gems worth picking up

The fuck is their UI?

Princeton? Aren't those the guys that sell that giant 2 volume Aristotle Complete Works?? Woooooowwwweeeeee I better drop everything and buy it right away! Aristotle, in a well-known passage of the Metaphysics, tells us that there were two inventions to which Socrates might justly lay claim—the defining of general terms (τὸ ὁρίζεσθαι καθόλου), and inductive reasoning (ἐπακτικοὶ λόγοι).

I looked through their whole catalog and missed that.
Thanks man. Anything else?

I thought Mary Beard was somewhat based, though. Maybe I'm thinking about someone else

There is the Auden Collected Prose and European Literature and the Latin Middle Ages, so thats cool.

How on earth has shipping here risen to 250 dollars? I admittedly haven't ordered anything from overseas myself since the war started, but 250 for a book is ridiculous. It was always pricey, but never to that extent.

How did this get published?

>>20567464
to be fair, the title isn't wrong. there IS systemic racism.. against Whites. also, isn't princeton universary press having their books made in third world countries now? some anon posted about it in the press thread a couple weeks back. said it's like three people that actually work there or something and that they don't have any equipment there anymore.

all the books i've ordered from princeton press have been printed in the united states. my dad used to work in a factory running a printing press in new england for a different company. most books are still printed in here because it's capital intensive and labor isn't a big cost. it takes like two or three people to man a printing press and that thing can spam out books all night with minimal intervention. plus books are big but not that valuable unlike say iphones which are small and expensive so the economics of shipping are way different.
