the cost / page count thing for me is a non starter, if im interested in the subject, I tend to get it, im aware of the time / effort / difficulty, of research into  an obscure subject ( from trying to do a product listing of a couple of RPGs before the internet made such, easy as Wiki).  The biggest thing is, is it well researched / written / illustrated, if its the same photos and things as in every other book on the subject, its the reason I wont buy.
not quite a standard answer, or possibly not the exact answer you'll be looking for, but my reasoning and answer

Gondor:
I'm quite happy with all the options shown in the link. If the subject warrants the increase in pages then I would have no problem in an associated price increase.

The question really is I guess, if the book is more expensive, even if it has more pages, is it going to cost sales?

I know I would always rather get a bigger book personally if the material supports it, and the extra cost isn't that important to me provided it seems to provide bang-for-buck (so it shouldn't be more than a proportional price increase, not a doubling or whatever). I guess for the people here that might be common. I wonder about "casual" readers. Are there any for something so specialist? People who pick up a ProjectTech book and would take a risk at 10.99 but hesitate to pay 14.99?

Steel Penguin:
Overscan, I will say that I picked up the p1216 book on a "punt" and was very impressed, and compared to the price ( at the time) of something like a games workshop army list ( codex) which was 12 or 15  for not much, if anything more, was more than happy,  I will add that the current price of said books 30  even hard backed is too much, but the prices your covering, are still in my "very reasonable" range.
