Not too long now.

For those mildly interested in a book so important that everything had to wait on its arrival, it is

Virgil Ciocîltan, The Mongols and the Black Sea Trade in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, Brill (2012).

It has arrived here at last, and though I’m not responsible for the fact, I feel oddly chuffed to learn that I have the only tangible [hard-back] copy of it in the southern hemisphere.

Yep. Libraries are starved of funds, besotted with virtual books over things on shelves, and … well, it is a Brill.
