I have been a member of eBay since July 1998 and started selling books shortly after joining. Most of my auctions start at very low opening prices and run with no reserve, allowing you, the bidder, to determine the ultimate selling price. This format ensures that the bidding process is an entertaining one; a unique opportunity to grab an item at a great price. As for signed material, I guarantee that all signatures are 100% authentic. Most of the material I list on eBay is obtained from estate sales, thrift stores, and used book stores. If a signature is questionable, I do not list it….period. I offer both signed and inscribed material, and although “flat signed” material is often preferable from a collectability standpoint, with the flood of fake signatures in the market place today, an inscribed copy can actually lend more legitimacy to the signature. Please review my perfect feedback rating before bidding.

Condition: All flaws noted. Book is Near Fine. Name of prior owner on top of front free pastedown. A wonderful copy!!!!!

Grading Criteria:

As New : book is in the same immaculate condition

Fine : book approaches the condition of As New, but without being crisp. No defects, etc., and if the jacket has a small tear, or other defect, or looks worn, this should be noted.

Very Good : book shows some small signs of wear on either binding or paper.

Good : book that has average wear and tear with all pages or leaves present.

Fair : book is worn with complete text pages (including those with maps or plates) but may lack end papers, half-title, etc. (which must be noted). Binding, jacket (if any), etc. may also be worn.

Poor : book is sufficiently worn that its only merit is as a Reading Copy because it does have the complete text, which must be legible. Any missing maps or plates should still be noted. This copy may be soiled, scuffed, stained or spotted and may have loose joints, hinges, pages, etc.

Ex-library : book that is retired from a library. Must always be designated as such no matter what the condition of the book.

Shipping: Buyer to pay all shipping costs. International shipping rates will vary based on destination. Please do not ask for exact shipping quotes as there are various websites where you can calculate this on your own based on the above-described weight range. I have shipped numerous books internationally and have never received a complaint with respect to shipping costs. All books securely packaged in bubble wrap to ensure safe delivery. Insurance optional at buyer cost.

Payment: Payment must be received within 3 days of auction close.

Return Policy: Detailed descriptions and sufficient pictures are taken of every book to provide potential bidders with enough information to make fully informed decisions about a book prior to bidding. As such, returns will be accepted within 14 days only if the buyer can point to a material non-disclosed flaw in the book. If you feel that you need more detail about the condition of a book, please ask before bidding. I will respond to all inquiries.
