If you haven't been watching the exchange rates recently, you might not realize that the value of the British pound against the dollar has fallen considerably. Today at XE.com, one pound is worth $1.59. Not long ago, it was north of $1.90. That means an £85 Bible from R. L. Allan & Sons that would have cost more than $160 not long ago is closer to $135 now. So far, my efforts to convince my wife that going crazy on the Swaine Adeney Brigg site now makes good economic sense have met with little success, though.
