Harry S. Truman By Margaret Truman (1974, Paperback) 070113 For Sale
Every item that we sell—whether it be a First Edition Hardcover, a rare matchbook, a DVD, or . . . —is in our inventory and ready to ship. We are not a ‘Brokerage House’, which takes an order, then scampers around looking for the item to fill that order. This helps us to ship our items in a timely manner, which our buyers appreciate (just look at our response!).
With some books, we receive so many messages asking for a book’s particulars—which have been pre-answered in the book’s listing—that we can’t answer the messages. With that said, if a listing doesn’t say 1st Edition, then it isn’t a 1st Edition.
Not every publisher puts the term ‘First Edition’ on the copyright page of a First Edition. First Editions are also known by the price on the dust jacket, and/or the number line found on the copyright page. This info can easily be corroborated by logging into Amazon.com and viewing a book’s copyright page (if Amazon.com doesn’t have said info, that is not our fault).
The (supposed) delivery times that is placing with purchases are only approximations. Delivery times will vary due to where the item is shipping from and, where the item is headed. Please understand, the estimations for delivery time(s) are ’s doing, not ours.
Please don’t message us, asking if a particular book has a remainder mark: if it does, this will be noted. The amount of messages--concerning this point--makes answering all of them impossible.
We try to be very careful and thorough when we list our books. We list our books using ’s catalog (which contains about 75% of what we sell). ’s catalog listings don’t allow entering info such as: if a book is a Book Club Edition [BCE] or, an ex-library book [XLB]—which can contain stamps, stickers, a pocket, glue spots, tape on the boards, writing within, etc.; If a book is a First Edition, is signed, has illustrations, etc., that will be listed; if a DJ is price-clipped, that will be listed; if the book is not a first printing, that will be listed or shown through a scan of the Copyright Page.
Sometimes—luckily, not often—the catalog isn’t the most helpful when putting items on for sale. In those instances, what is in said catalog isn’t an exact fit for the book being sold (i.e., the ISBN comes up as a Hardcover when in actuality it’s for a Trade Paperback, or, vice versa; the cover which appears with the ISBN isn’t the actual cover of the book; etc.). When that happens, we will note the disparity (usually as an ad-in description).
Book Conditions are my estimation, as a twenty–year buyer/seller. Yours might differ.
If you are unhappy with a book you have received, please send us a message, and we’ll work together to remedy the situation.
We have had many people ask why we require purchase(s) to be paid for immediately. This is solely because, if we allow people to not pay immediately, we wind up with several unpaid items every week. This consequently removes said item from circulation, for ten days (five days to wait for payment, then five days for to try and get the fraudulent buyer to pay). After ten days, we can then re-list said unpaid-for item. We’re just a small, sole-proprietor-ship, and can’t let our inventory sit unsold for that long.
With that said, if you would like to purchase several items at once, drop us a message, and we can list you as someone who doesn’t fall under this caution.
Returns are an aspect of doing retail business. We realize this, and further state that we are simple human beings, who are prone to make mistakes.
If we make a mistake, we have a 100% return policy. If this happens, and it is our fault, we will refund your money to you once we receive the item back. We will refund your postal expense to ship the item back to us, once we receive the item back. What we will not do is send a pre-paid envelope to you to cover the return postage or, issue a refund before we receive the problem item back. The reasons for this are simple: 1), our items are priced such that we make a fraction of what the buyer’s expense is and to send an envelope with a pre-paid envelope inside means that we have now expended more than the item is worth; and, 2), most times we never receive the item, which should be returned.
This is an unwavering policy for us. If this is not something you—the buyer—are comfortable with, please feel free to shop elsewhere.
Sorry for the extended boiler-plate. A handful of problem buyers has made the above a necessity.
