Amazon Historical Pricing

The Amazon Historical Pricing web service gives developers programmatic access to over three years of actual sales data for books, music, videos, and DVDs (as sold by third-party sellers on Amazon.com). Sellers can use Amazon Historical Pricing to make informed decisions on pricing and purchasing.

Unfortunately it seems to be limited to getting 10 items at a time:

* Returns pricing information for up to ten items per request

Which will limit the potential for this to be used by book historians as a kind of barometer for cultural or economic change.
