Preliminary specifics of the book and costs

(with some reservation)

Codex Oera Linda ~ English edition will have a hard cover with linen back, 96 pages color (original manuscript) + 288 pages black/white (translation, transliteration, introduction, index etc.) = 384 pages and three reading ribbons.

Size: 17 x 24 x 3.2 cm = 6.7 x 9.4 x 1.3 in.

Weight: 1,150 gram = 2,5 lb.

Price per copy will be €36 (currently ca. $44). Shipping to USA is already sponsored (see below). For other regions with shipping costs higher than within Europe, sponsors are sought. The Foundation may sponsor those by giving a discount of the price per copy.

Deadline for sending PDF to printer is set to June 21st and delivery to the Foundation should then be within four weeks.

Shipping cost per destination group

1. United States of America

If you are in the US, you are lucky, because a Florida based sponsor (and longstanding Oera Linda enthusiast) has offered to take care of distribution within the US. You will only pay your share in the shipment of boxes (with 16 books each) from the Netherlands to Florida, which is €10 per copy (ca. $12). Until now, most copies have been pre-ordered from the US: 113 (51%).

2. Netherlands

The second largest number were pre-ordered in the Netherlands (15%), not including mine and copies needed for PR.

There will be several mail options:

incl. VAT (btw)
track & trace,
post office delivery
track & trace,
home address delivery

1 - 8 copies (max. 10 kg)
€6,25
€6,75 €8,70
9 - 19 copies (max. 23 kg)

Note that it will be worth ordering more copies at once, sharing delivery costs with friends or family. It is also possible to avoid any mail cost (and/or not name a delivery address) by picking them up at the Foundation's address (Diever).

    1. Thank you for asking. The Dutch have been mailed today with payment options; an English version will follow soon to all other who have pre-ordered.
