I've been selling books online for 7 years, but I came to books as a collector first. Consequently I don't look at books as a commodity, but rather as treasures and items that bring unique pleasure and valuable feelings to those who collect them. So I do my best to describe my books accurately and ship them promptly in well-padded cardboard boxes. This dedication to service and accuracy was passed on to me by one of the first dealers I worked with, whose catalogues I couldn't wait to get in the mail, and whose books always arrived promptly, in good shape and in the condition described. And if things weren't right(very rarely), then he made them right, and that's what I do as well. I hope you can find something interesting in my collection.
