Two Regency Books

There are two very good books about the Regency that I noticed are not in the bibliography...
The Thurtell-Hunt Murder Case, Dark Mirror to Regency England by Albert Borowitz, Louisiana State University Press. This is a look into the actual transcrips of a Regency murder case and an in-depth observation of bruisers, gambling,etc. Very interesting and very informative.
Our Tempestuous Day, A History of Regency England by Carolly Erickson, Quill. A thorough account of just about everything that took place during the Regency.
I've had these books for some time and they don't have the price anywhere on them. I bought The Thurtell Hunt (brand new!) in a library bookstore for $4.00 but I just saw it advertised for special order by Crown Books and the cost was $35.00 or something like that. Tempestuous Day is probably about $25-35.
