ANTIQUE ITEMS AS REPRESENTED: Brian DiMambro is an established, full time antiquarian dealer in old, fine, and rare maps and books with 25+ years of experience.
Please know thatwe absolutely never attempt to mis-represent what we are offering. Almost everything we sell is 100 or more years old and antique items can be challenging to describe. We takemultiple pictures for everyitem,and wedo our best to mention & describe the item in a way which accurately and fully conveys what it is and how it survives. We're never trying to hide anything or deceive you, since you'll be receiving the item and can inspect it.
It is possible we can occasionally overlook or miss something, fail to mention something, etc., but it is never done intentionally and we are always willing to take something back if our description somehow omits mentioning something which can reasonably considered a note-worthy fault or defect (old book plates at the front of books do not count here). If we notice something overlooked in the listing before shipment we will contact you before shipping your order.
Describing thecondition of antique items is always a bit subjective; everyone attaches different levels of importance to different issues. We tell you all this to explain our approach to describing our items. We try hard to make sure that when our customers receive their order they are happy with it and this is indeed usually the outcome.
Most people who buy from us are very happy when the item arrives and often feel we have undersold the item- that it is in fact nicer than we said and nicer than it appears on the screen.
Even after the sale, we're here for you. We want you to come back and become a regular customer and tell your friends about
We hope you find us friendly and reasonable. We're confident you'll be pleased with the item and the transaction. If you are ever unhappy for any reason, please email us before you leave response! We will work with you and you will leave us happy!
