Two prices, one book

Spotted at a  Crossword Bookstore in Bangalore bookstore.

The two are the same title, and if you observe closely, even have the same ISBN - 9780060555665!
Yet, and this is where things get a bit comical, the book on the left has a price of Rs 705, while the one on the right is listed at Rs 615.
Secondly, the blue cover book is graced with a "Crossword Recommends" sticker, while the red book, one on the left, has to make do without one.
Thirdly, that it should happen to a book about intelligence and investing, The Intelligent Investor: The Definitive Book on Value Investing. A Book of Practical Counsel (Revised Edition), makes it that much more, ironical, shall we put it?

I had blogged about Law of one price breaks down a while back. This case is even curioser. Or as I may put it, "ajab books ki gazab price".
