Sure, they probably will. And that is what the publisher is likely to
count on. But this price means that four other books, perhaps in less
popular fields that ours, will not be bought, because the price of this
book is five times the normal price.

It is perhaps less extreme than in the case of many journals, but what
commercial publishers are doing here may well be similarly destructive.
