As a new junior lecturer 10 years ago, a colleague commented that she had visions of me secretly squirrelling pots of money away. In that spirit, I was wondering whether anyone else noticed the flimsy tome that is 1611: Authority, Gender and the Word in Early Modern England, by Helen Wilcox, a snip at £50 or, for the more frugal of us, £40.99 (e-book), for a whopping 0 pages (Books, 3 April). I was wondering whether there is a correlation between the increase in the price of academic books and vice-chancellors’ annual pay as, apparently, they are the only ones who can afford to buy such books.
