I'm an old, retired fart who discovered First Editions about four years ago. I enjoy prowling FOL book shelves, library sales, garage sales, estate sales, book fairs and antiquarian fairs, used book stores, and out-of-town bookstores. The enjoyment actually became a mania so that I plan my route among the various sales on Saturday mornings and feel short-changed when there’s nothing to visit. I scour the newspaper and websites for author signings and started to avidly research books that I have bought and read. I try to learn something about books every day and try to read one of my copies at least an hour each day.
My books aren’t the cheapest but I am usually proud of my offerings (if I’m less than proud, I’ll try to honestly note the copy’s faults) for your consideration. Please feel free to check my member name ("Tasker05") EBay feedback as a testimonial. Although I am still learning, I am much more discriminating now than I was in my “youth” so I will not try to peddle book club editions, remainders or “reading copies”. There are some books I hate to sell but I have to fund my passion somehow. Hopefully, I have found a copy of something that you want or need for your collection.
Since I want my customers to be pleased with their purchases, I offer a full refund and will pay for the return shipping if an individual advises me they are not satisfied within thirty days of their receipt of their book.
I gladly accept personal checks or money orders but, I’m sorry, I must decline credit cards, PayPal and all of those other internet payment methods.
I will cushion your book in bubble-wrap and ship it by USPS Media Mail in a new corrugated box from a smoke-free environment. I include Delivery Confirmation with my USPS
