Just a tip about these books. "LaTeX Companion 2nd ed" has a list price of
$59.99 USD and "Guide to LaTeX 4th ed" has a list price of $49.99 USD.

They are very good books (for me) and they complement each other).

BUT, there is a box called "The LaTeX Companions, Revised Set" that has
both books plus "The LaTeX Graphics Companion" and "The Latex Web Companion",
in a total of four LaTeX books.

The ISBN is 0321269446 and there is a page about it at:

Doing a search with google the box can be bought for $134.00 USD

No experience with the above store.

My box was bought from http://www.ecampus.com on January at $122.49 USD.
Now they want $164.49 USD.  OUCH !!!!!!


One good thing of the box is that the shipping to pay is only
for one "book" usually.
