I wasn't able to vote because I got a Google "Error: Sorry" message after posting it. When I returned later, the poll was closed.

I did not realize that individual chapters of the book were available for purchase as PDF files. Thanks for pointing that out. However, that still seems less satisfactory than having the book be available as a hardcopy. For starters, it seems that each chapter costs $31.50, so that the whole book would cost over $400.

My message to on 8/30/2008 about the complete price for a paper version was confirmed, forwarded, reminded but yet without answer. Today I sent another query to Up to now it seems that the price exploded, once 166 USD for the paper version, now 441 USD for the pdf version!

CSB Direct (ELS) [] replied:
[...] the title ‘Recent Results in the Theory of Graph’ is out of print [...] If you do know of any other editions to this title, could you please confirm [...]

I did so, but I did not receive any further reply. Interestingly
shows some sample pages and even allows searching within the book.

Because of all this I am in doubt about the seriousness of the offered pdf pages and reopened the voting now.

Elsevier Books Customer Service confirmed the availability of the E-book-edition, but could not explain the huge price increase based on former paper edition.
