Hs 129 Classic book Q. ....

I have the book but am missing a couple others in the 'series'.

Seller states "...will never be reprinted". Is that a known 'fact'? Classic has never re-published any of their hardbound titles? If yes, why? Figure not enough demand for a second printing of an $$$ niche HB? Only have photo/etc rights for just the one printing?

So far it appears to be an accurate statement.

But who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of publishers.

Not one of the Luftwaffe Colors series has gone into reprint, and they are over a decade old. First section of first volume was copyright 1999.

Their HE177 volume has just been reprinted. and I suspect the FW200 as well.

I wish the Luftwaffe Colours series would come out again, I have a couple of gaps that need filling, I'll eventually get them all, some strategic reprints would speed up that process immensely.
