I think what you run into is not a problem of Embperl here but
one of Apache: You try to request a file that is not inside the
DocumentRoot and Apache prevents you from doing that (imagine it
wouldn't, would be nice to request sth. like ../../../etc/passwd
from big companies servers then *grin*)
You can however access files outside the DocumentRoot from
the server side, aka via an explicit Execute('content.html') or
via configuration directives like that for base.epl or the
fallback document. 
I suggest you shrink your DocumentRoot to
/usr/local/apache/htdocs and do a redirection to your
mybookprices directory via http_headers_out, or you copy (or
symlink, as for that) content.html into the DocumentRoot
