How to Order

Prices are net and in US funds. We have one copy of each book at the time of posting the lists. All are subject to prior sale. Please reserve any item by giving the author, title & bookid by e-mail to reserve the items you wish to order  Please tell us the country you are in so we can estimate the shipping cost. We will confirm by e-mail if they're still available and will let you know the total cost including shipping.. We will hold the items for upon receipt of your confirmation, while your cheque or money order is being sent. 

Payment Methods

First, email us which items you wish to order, including author, title, bookID# and your location so we can calculate the shipping cost.  We will then reply with the total cost and the payment methods.

The following payment methods are available:

Payments will be processed in US dollars.  Payments in Canadian dollars may be made by cheque only, at the current exchange rate.


The cost of shipping is extra. We do not charge a handling or packing fee and take pride in wrapping items well and securely. We ship anywhere in the world and charge only what we have to pay either the post office, UPS, or other shippers.   Insurance is extra at $2.25 per $100. We will automatically insure orders over $100.00.  Shipping by air mail, expresspost, UPS or FedEx can be done at cost if requested. Orders to Canadian addresses will have the 5% GST/HST for books or 13% for prints added to the total (registration # R136863693).

The cost of shipping prints by surface mail  is $9.00 for the total order in US & Canada, elsewhere may be slightly higher. Insurance is extra.


All books or prints listed here have been carefully described. We use the standard terms for describing condition as accepted in the antiquarian book trade. Neat inscriptions by previous owners are sometimes not noted. Clipped prices on dj's are not always noted. We will happily give more details on any item upon request, including a picture. Any item may be returned for any reason within 7 days for a refund, but if found not corresponding to its description it may be returned within 7 days for a refund plus the shipping cost, if we are emailed in advance, and the item is returned in the same condition as sent.  

Pictures of any book are available upon request.
