Please note that considerable care has been taken to accurately describe each item. If found to be not as described, books are returnable within 5 days with prior notice; please email first for authorization.

Clean copies from libraries or other institutional collections are always noted as "ex library", which indicates the presence of former library stamps, card pockets, or call numbers in any combination. They will, however, always be internally clean, unless noted to the contrary. To the best of my knowledge all such books have been legitimately deacquisitoned.

All books are listed subject to prior sale. Prices are net to all. First-time buyers will be requested to send a check with their order.

Interested clients are invited to send an email to enquire on the availability of an item. An email containing a serious commitment to buy an item will suffice for the item to be held for 5 days (more if needed for international clients).

PAYMENT may be in the form of personal checks on USA banks, money orders, or International Money Orders, drawn in US funds. Libraries will be invoiced upon request.

I regret that I can only accept credit card payments via ABE's "Ecommerce" program. This method of payment will be somewhat more costly for buyers, however, and I invite clients to contact me via email to arrange for other, cheaper, methods of payment.

SHIPPING, handling, and insurance will be charged at cost. Unless otherwise specified by the client, USPS 4th class book rate ("Media Mail") will be used for all Domestic (U.S.) orders. We will ship by U.S. Priority mail at $3.50 for the first volume and $1.50 for each additional volume.

International shipping:
Standard sized books by surface mail at $18 for the first volume and $7 for each additional volume. Rates for unusual/oversized books, regular airmail and insured packages - priced upon request.

Global Priority Airmail (where applicable: the book must be small enough to fit inside of the special envelope provided by the USPS) at cost, usually $12+ per volume. Please write for an estimate. All orders over $100 will be insured.
