OUR SERVICE AND PRODUCT GUARANTEE:
For our service, very simply put, our intention is to provide you with the fastest, most efficient service possible. To that end, most of our orders are shipped within 24 hours of the receipt of your payment. Often we ship in less than 4 hours of the same day that we receive the payment. Rarely do we ever take over 24 hours to ship. Delays mostly occur to orders coming in on weekends and holidays. Even then, we ship as soon as the Post Office reopens.
All orders are packed carefully to survive almost any aniticpated occurance. They are prepared with plastic wrapping to keep out moisture, then put in an appropriate package for shipment. Many prints and maps are sent in a cardboard roll. Any item that comes with a mat will always be shipped flat. Any item containing glass can be a challenge, especially a picture frame with glass. We have only ever had two break. We now add even more tape and padding to avoid that. In almost every case, your shipment will come with a tracking number. For shipments outside the United States, we do not have an affordable shipping method to provide that. Our postal officials can, basically,only verify when a package went out.
Also, even though we usually describe our shipping as by an economy method and free, we almost always ship prints by First Class Mail with tracking. Books, are, in fact, almost always shipped by Media Rate which can be slower for delivery.
As for our products, we unconditionally guarantee all our items to be as described.
If you want to return the item for ANY reason, we will definitely return your money without question.
Our pricing is based on the cost to us to acquire our pieces, advertise and display them, and to deliver them. The replacement value is a major consideration also for our pricing. The more unique and historically significant a piece is will certainly make it more expensive. As a rule, however, we do try to be economically competitive. We know that no one offers a better customer satisfaction guarantee. Few, if any, have a better or more inexpenisve delivery system.
Our unlisted inventory consists of about a thousand times more items than we currently have listed for sale. We have been acquiring items for over thirty years and only recently have we started to expand our items. We expect our listings to increase dramatically over the coming year. If you don't see anything to meet your interests right now, please, check back soon because we will be adding items almost daily.
THIS ITEM FOR SALE IS THE ORIGINAL AND AUTHENTIC ITEM DESCRIBED ABOVE, GUARANTEED! ...not a reproduction of an original unless specifically described as such. We occasionally do offer reprints of items. The reason for this is that some items are so scarce that we basically could not replace them once sold and we know that more than one person is highly interested in the item. I know I would be happy to own a reprint or modern reproduction of something compared to not being able to have it at all. Our reprints are usually priced to reflect their ready availability.

DEFINITIONS & GLOSSARY:
Before describing the terms we frequently use, it should be noted that many of the items we offer for sale come from old, and for the most part, partially damaged books and magazines. Most often, the damage is too extensive to repair. The time and cost is simply prohibitive. However, some pages can be salvaged and used for display purposes. So it is that we saved these pages for our customers. This process actually began about 50 years ago when I was an undergraduate student at Saint Bonaventure University. I worked part time in the library bookbindery. We often bound old magazines and were instructed to remove the advertising sections and discard them before binding. After a few weeks on the job I asked for permission to personally keep some of the discarded advertisements. With permission granted, I began my journey into collecting ephemera which later grew to many other areas including books, art, and antiques. Now on to the terms that are used.
Ephemera: Transitory written and printed matter not intended to be retained or preserved. Some traditional items are advertising, greeting cards, letters, pamphlets, postcards, stock certificates, etc..
Provenance: The chain of ownership of an item from its discovery or creation to its present owner. A thorough provenance documentation can add considerably to the value of an item, be it a piece of art or a book. Many items do not have a complete provenance because their origins and/or chain of ownership may have never been properly recorded.
We use the following seven levels for grading. When in doubt about a possible borderline rating, we use the lower grade. If you buy an item and decide we did not grade it properly, remember you can return anything within 30 days with no questions asked. Here are the standards we use:
Mint: The item looks like it did the day it was made. If there is any defect, it is one that occurred when it was made. It is new, pure and simple.
Very Fine: This is an item which is bright and fresh and clean. It has no surface wear or soiling of any kind. A tiny crease in a margin might exist as long as it does not affect the illustrated portion. It may have a tear of up to half an inch as long as it does not affect the printed area. The printed area may have a center fold if that was the way it was originally presented, as in a double page spread of a magazine or book. The item may have a mailing label or sticker present, as long as it was put there by the original producer. This may have printing on the reverse side but the printing can not in any way show through.
Fine: This item is better than the average copy available. It may show signs of minor wear or use but is essentially clean and fresh in appearance. It may have a hint of age toning to the paper but no major browning. The paper is still flexible with no signs of becoming brittle. It may have some edge wear and tears but there can be no loss of any text or portion of the illustration. There may be printing on the reverse side but it should not show through in any significant way. Again, there may be a crease in the border area and a foldmark in the center if it was so published.
Very Good: This item is one that shows some wear. It may have a crease that occurred after production. Up to a one inch tear may exist and even extend into the printed area. No portion of the printed area is missing. There may be rust marks from a staple binding or even some light finger soiling. Age toning to the paper is more pronounced and may actually be a dark tan color.
Good: This item may have a number of defects. It could have a tear of up to two inches even extending into the printed portion. It may have soiling, creases, scuffing and edge pieces missing. The paper may be well age toned but not brittle. The colors may be a little faded from their original appearance. A little wrinkling or waving may appear in the paper. If printed on the reverse, some of the printing may show through or there may be offset from a picture or printing on the opposite page. There may even be a small mark or piece of writing from a previous owner. This item, as a rule, however, will still display well.
Fair: Down at this level, the item has a multitude of defects that are noticeable and quite obvious. There may be a tear extending over a half of the printed area. There may be very noticeable offset or bleed through printing. There will be one or more of the following defects: tears, edge wear, heavy age toning, foxing spots, small or light stains from a variety of possible sources, wrinkles, small pieces missing from the edges and even the printed area. The paper may be showing signs of becoming brittle.
Poor: A poor item has just about every defect you can imagine. It may brittle, rubbed, scratched, folded, mildew stained, age toned, even separated into parts. Chunks of the printed area may be missing with a loss of text and/or illustration. It may be heavily faded or heavily stained or both. The piece must have some historical significance or possible sentimental lure for it to be offered for sale. Most items in this category end up being tossed out. The price for a poor item is usually quite low unless it has some objective importance of note.
Foxing: Small brown spots that appear on paper.
Age Toning: The process that results in the paper itself becoming darker over a period of time. It starts with a hint of tanning to a solid tan appearance followed by a complete appearance of brown.
