While small ephemera items ship at basic airmail letter rate of $1.50 - $6.50 depending on size and shape of documents items valued over $100 they will require insurance and rates are about $1.25 per $100. To register mail is $12.45 above postage. Expedited insured parcels begin at about $10.50. These are approximate costs which will be determined after the sale.
There is a flat $2 for ephemera and books, $3.00 for items requiring postal tube packaging.
Please note: I mail within 6-24 hours of payment - it is the Post Ofice that takes 4 to 18 business days shipping to USA. Europe/overseas is 21 to 65 days. Holidays make this worse.
I strive to give 100% satisfaction, so if there is something wrong with your purchase you need only get in touch by email and find a customer service oriented seller. I am a member of the Manuscript Society and the IOBA [International Online Booksleers Association] whose ethical policies and guidelines I follow. Every effort is made to accurately describe all merchandise. I stay informed about the items I sell. Nobody wants or likes the frustrations caused by "hidden" flaws and do not wish to cause anyone dissatisfaction. That said, most of my books come from private libraries, auction houses and the odd time from public libraries. As such you can expect that they may have tags, inscriptions, writings, or other indicators of past ownership or price.
My #1 policy: Honesty is the only policy.
My #1 rule: Do unto others, as one wants done unto themselves.
I take payment through Paypal. Some listing sites insist on Paypal as the only method of payment - you are welcome to ask me about payment alternatives.
Thank you for looking and please take a moment to look at my other items online.
