As James Cummings recently announced, the TEI Consortium is discontinuing formal
support for the P4 version of the TEI Guidelines (cf.
The P4 Guidelines were published as a 2-volume set in 2002 and distributed via
the University of Virginia Press (ISBN-10 0-952-33013-X) at a list price of $90.
A few dozen copies remain in print. The TEI Consortium has decided to offer them
for sale at essentially cost: for US addresses, $14 + $6 shipping = $20; for other
addresses, $14 + $17 shipping = US$31.
If you wish to order one or more copies, please do so within the next two weeks
(by 21 December), by contacting:
