Subject to prior sale

Orders may be reserved by phone, Fax or e-mail. Because many titles listed are out-of-print and one-of-a-kind it is best to call, write or Fax about availability of titles, particularly those generally known to be long out-of-print or scarce. We continue to provide an effective search service for out-of-print books in many fields. Please send us a copy of your wants and interests.

Our guarantee

We have attempted to thoroughly describe all books. However, any item may be returned within seven days of receipt, for any reason, and will be refunded in full, provided condition of the book has not changed.

For the protection of your investment and the appearance of your library we put a protective plastic cover on every book we sell that has a dust jacket. Although this is relatively common in the out-of-print book market, it is very rarely done on new books. However, our appreciation of the books we sell requires that we do what we can to keep every book sold in the best possible condition for years to come and to last through multiple readings. If there are any other actions we can take to serve you better please let us know.

Thank you for your interest and support.
