Knob/lock for exterior double doors?

You know those ones where you turn the knob or handle and it moves bolts at the top and bottom of the door?

I spent an hour googling last night, but could not find one. Much of the problem is that I can't remember what they are called :).

Anybody want to remind me? And/or know of a good but inexpensive one? Last I checked they were around $300, but I am hoping they may have come down a bit.

Thank you, Renovator8!!!

Cremone was the word I was looking for! And yay, there ARE less expensive ones on the market now.

Anybody here have experience with this one, for example?

Here is a link that might be useful: Cremone bolt
