I'd like to order the book "Works of H. P. Blavasky 31 Illustrated Books w/ links" in kindle version but found that the page says "This title is not currently available for purchase." I see recent reviews taken but of course they might have been written before the item turned unavailable. My question is why this item is not available and will it be available again? What's the Amazon policy in terms of the availability for purchases? Is there any other people who can buy it now and only me seeing that message of non-availability?

it probably has to do with where you live and your Country Settings - I can't even find the book to see if it's available for me or not, but I'm in France and a search will only show books available for me. I see lots of books in my recommendations or in the bestseller lists that turn out to be unavailable.

you might look on the page for the book and note who the publisher is and then see if they have a website you could purchase it from or try contacting them (google for a contact address) and asking them to make it available for your region

Well, there is no information on the publisher in the Product Details either.

that is odd

it's possible that it is/was the Theosophical University Press

I see it available in the U.S. for .99:

Works of H. P. Blavasky 31 Illustrated Books w/ links

Availability of ebooks depends on your country and the rights that the publisher/author has to distribute it.

not available in France either

can you see a publisher name for the OP?

Well, I presume that the publisher does not wish to distribute it to Hong Kong then. I can't purchase it at all. Anyone can advise me where to turn to? Thanks.

Aren't most/all her books now in the Public Domain? If so they may be available free of charge from several websites. A Google search should find them.

My guess for this book is that it's a simple compilation that's been published through Amazon.

Yep, I want to have a compilation in one go like compendium.

It's not available in the UK either.

Frankly, I wouldn't recommend a book that has such a terrible error in the title and the author's name. She was Helena Blavatsky, not Blavasky.

Look at, search for Blavatsky. You will see lots of her books free. Don't know if the omnibus edtion is among them. I didn't want to do all your research for you.
