The bw photographs are clean and crisp. The page edges of the printed text stock are slightly brittle, and less than 10 pages exhibited very small tears from the page edge inward where they have been roughly flipped apparently. A few of the photographic pages have tissue guards.

To my friends and customers in the following countries: (Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, Bulgaria, Latvia, Thailand, Romania, Russian Federation, Vietnam, South Africa, China):

I apologize for having to cancel my earlier sales this week, but it was impossible for my friends and customers in these countries to offer on these items, and I could not allow that to happen in fairness to them. So I think I have found a solution (at least a temporary one).

Because of a problem with the shipping program (that was blocking offers from these customers), I have had to enroll in their Global Shipping Program in order for them to be able to offer on my sales. I was getting many emails from customers in these countries (mostly China) telling me they could not get to accept offers on these items!

I prefer to ship directly to all my customers, as I have for many years, but the flaw in the program now prevents me from doing this, at least (I think) for the countries in the list above. I believe I can still ship directly to most other countries, but the listing will tell you in each case (I believe) whether you will need to have it shipped to you through the program or directly from me. This is all new to me, as well! It adds another layer and is very annoying, but the end result is the same: you get terrific items for your research collection.

I believe then, that (the way this system works) when you successfully offer on an item from me, YOU WILL BE GIVEN AT LEAST ONE SHIPPING OPTION. If you use the Global Shipping Plan (GSP) your invoice will show that you are paying me for the actual item and the shipping within the United States to the central location I will ship your item. Then you will also see another charge for the balance of the shipping to get the item to you, this being billed to you (somehow) by Pitney Bowes, who is actually going to ship your item to you. I do not understand how or why the new system estimates “Import charges” but I do know that this system will be declaring the actual price you pay for an item. There is nothing I can do to remedy this situation.

If you are able to have me bill you and ship directly, then it should proceed as it always has. If you have a choice between using their program and having me ship it directly to you, I would suggest you chose to have me send it.

There is also (currently) no way for me to combine shipping on International purchases using this system. Again, I apologize for this, but it is all out of my control as long as I must use the Global Shipping Plan.

I am not in favor of this system, but it is (at least for the short term) the only way I can allow you to offer on my items. I apologize for this, and truly hope to be able to resolve this issue with very soon. If you wish to further read about it, as I did, do a Google search on " involuntary shipping exclusions" or " Blocks International buyers from US Media Categories"
