More about this item

Batch of 8 Eyewitness Science Books


This batch of 8 Eyewitness Science books include rare First Prints and editions.  All books are in very good to excellent condition.  One copy has a last name written in a corner in neat, tiny print.  All other pages in that book and the others are unmarked.


The set is for a wide children's age range, and for science enthusiasts and book collectors of all ages.  It includes 6 DK publications, and 2 Alfred A. Knopfs.  One DK publication on Whales was published and sold in London and still has the British dust jacket with the characteristically wide flap (shown in one the photos).


1 Alfred Knopf on Prehistoric Life is a First American edition and First Print.


1 DK Publication on Robots is a First American Edition and First Print.


Another DK publication on Astronomy is a First Print.


The specific publications in this engaging and informative set of 8 science explorations are as follows:




Whale, Vassili Papastavrou, 1993 (London Edition with Dust Jacket)

This item ships USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate Large Box with Delivery Confirmation.  Secure packaging includes clean, recycled paper from a smoke-free (but not pet free) environment. 


I will normally ship outside the U.S. but you will need to contact me with your location so that I can recalculate shipping charges.  If you then wish to purchase the set of books, I would post the international shipping charges so that you could purchase through the online advertisement.  If you are in Canada, I am guessing the rates would be similar to the U.S.




Return for any reason postmarked within 5 business days of receipt.  Item must be in the same condition upon return and buyer assumes responsibility for shipping charges in both directions.


Hope to hear from you,

and thanks for stopping by to shop!
