Publisher adding "old" eBooks

I just noticed that Vintage Publishing added some "new" eBooks from a favorite author - Nevil Shute. These books are fairly old and the author had been dead a while. 2 books will be available at both B&N and Amazon on Feb 9:
- "On the Beach"
- "A Town Like Alice"

Is this happening with other publishers?

If the Vintage is reading this, please consider MORE. Like "Trustee from the Tool Room".

A Town Like Alice is a great book. I just wonder if they will be pricing these as 'new releases' (hence, over $10) or more reasonably given the cheaper paperback option.

"A Town Like Alice" will be $9.99, but "On the Beach" will be $4.95.

And hopefully, they will sell to the Public Libraries.
