Boy, what some people are willing to dish out for a lie?
You know why they cost so much?
Because they are often named by Universities as required texts or core reading material.
Incidentally Universities are also free to decide what they teach (compared to government prescribed curriculum in most [western] schools). Therefore it is in their best interests to select reading and course material that comes from highly reputable sources - after all brand is nearly everything for a University: better brand, more students paying more money.
So high prices on evolution textbooks compared creationist texts may suggest as to which "area" is more reputable
