SMALLER PRINT RUNS FOR NUMISMATIC BOOKS?

Do the trends in philatelic literature reflect those in numismatic
literature?  He number of new numismatic books has been on the rise,
although I don't know about how print runs are trending. Leonard
Hartmann, the Louisville, Ky dealer in literature for the stamp
hobby writes in his Philatelic Bibliopole Newsletter #143:

"One unfortunate trend in serious philately is that books are being
issued in even smaller quantities than in the past and may go out
of print shortly after the reviews appear. We do not like this for
the hobby and will never suggest anyone should buy a book for it's
appreciation but only for the knowledge that one is to gain. A book
often goes up in price when it goes out of print but then over a
number of years it will go down as the market adjusts and new works
on the subject appear."
